There is no ambiguity about those colors, in my opinion. Weathering and fading has that
effect on all cars that begin with an 'oxide red' basis weather darker or lighter to begin with.

CGW boxcar color varied, just like their diesels. CGW modelers are constantly trying to pinpoint what is CGW maroon?

Are you referring to the color shift?  That slide looks off to me, everything else is too dark as well. I’ve seen other pics of these special cars which appear lighter.  In the eye of the beholder, I guess.
