Re: MILW Gondola Painting

Nelson,
I would certainly assume they were painted initially, repaints probably not. The Milw gons were used primarily for hauling coal and cinders and the abrasive and caustic nature of those materials would scrub the paint off in short order, so unless you’re modeling a newish car, I’d stick with well weathered wood.
