Re: Tru-Color formula for Pennsylvania FCC circa 1940 - any advice?

I don’t know the answer to your specific question, Charlie. I don’t recall reading anything about black underframes on Pennsy equipment of the pre-WW2 years.

 

I painted my X23 underframe the same color as the rest of the car.

The X23 is still on the workbench; I’m working on the PE ladders and have a question about the underframe color.  Did the PRR use black car cement on the underframe or was it painted the same as the carbody?  Thanks
