Re: Help with Northwestern green/yellow reefer

This is the only color shot I have that shows the end of a Y/G wood sheathed car and it looks green to me.

I have good shots of steel end Y/G cars and their ends are always green.

Actually Tim, your shot of NWX 2810 in a previous message is taken from a high enough vantage point that it shows the wood roof sheathing IS painted oxide like the running board and hatches. The brake wheel is also oxide. Anybody have a pic that clearly shows an oxide end on one of these green and yellow cars?
