Re: Kadee CGW box car oops?

Nicely built models, but both are slightly incorrect just because they use the
post-1953 PS-1 body of Intermountain. These CGW cars were built in 1951.

The original CGW car was maroon. Many of their special service cars were maroon. I say many because the LCL and hide cars were black. Now the shade of maroon is up for almost constant debate  ;  )) Kadee has trouble with colored cars. I'll leave it at that. Years back Mike Porter commissioned Intermountain to do three maroon CGW PS 1s including this one of a kind. IM got the color right. After much prodding by Mike.
