Thanks, Eric. That pretty much my thinking, but it doesn’t hurt to check with the experts.

I typically paint the trucks with the car color. When a prototype car is painted, over spray would cover at least some portion of the truck side frames. Weathering will alter the final appearance. The attached image of a B&O M-26b boxcar shows the effect. Additional examples can be seen on my Flickr gallery.
