Hi Sean,
The later PRR scheme for these cars was gray with black lettering.  The earlier scheme was FCC (red) with white lettering, but I don’t recall the timeframe for the change.
The PRRPro group on (See: did the PRR’s TM8 tank cars as Project No. 14 in 2008.  Messages started in April of that year with Message No. 4209.

Has anyone built one of F&C PRR TM8 tank car kits?  I picked up the 6991 black decal kit and assembled it but I don't know what color it should be. It looks white from the photo I have found but it could be silver. Let me know and thanks.
