Re: [EXT] Re: [RealSTMFC] North Western Refrigerator Line color
For all the other NWX cars, the grey side scheme is perfect for my era (and I have at least one). However, for these specific cars, which are the SnT project car, that scheme is clearly not appropriate, not is the yellow and green scheme.

There's a section on NWX cars in Gene Green's Color Guide. According to Gene, the yellow and green paint scheme was introduced in 1953. There's also a picture of a car in the grey scheme in 1960.
I'm suggesting that, depending on your era, the grey paint scheme may have been more common.
