Re: [EXT] [RealSTMFC] Red Caboose GATX "Flying A" Tank Car

We have discussed the viable paint schemes for the Red Caboose welded tank car repeatedly on this list, with the latest iteration less than a month ago! While I realize the search function on Yehaw sucked, the search on works just fine. A quick "red caboose tank" would get you all the information you need 😉

My apologies if this topic has been covered before.  I've used the group search function and have searched the internet at large and I am unable to find the answer.

Is the silver GATX "Flying A" paint job  applied to the Red Caboose 103W tank car based on reality, is it a totlal foobie, or somewhere in between? I think the answer would fall into one of these three categories:

1. Complete fantacy paint scheme
2. Paint scheme existed, but not for this type of car
3. Paint scheme accurate for this car

Thank you for any assistance.
