NYC and MILW Truck Color Question

Nelson Moyer

What color were trucks for these NYC and MILW gondolas under conditions stated?


NYC 751000-751099 wood floor rebuild in 1945, presumably repainted then, as it would appear in 1953.


MILW 80000-81034 repainted in 1947 as it would appear in 1953.


I have no color photos to work from, and color model photos available show both black and freight car red on both models, so they’re not a reliable reference.
