Charlie,

The only color picture in original paint of these cars that I am aware of is in RP Cyc 30 on p99.  Better pictures of the later red post 1958 paint scheme are in there and Burlington Bulletin 20.  The assumption is the Q did not suddenly start painting the roofs and hopper bottoms black in 1958 and had been painting the mineral red cars that way for a while.  This only applies to the original paint out of the shop.  Later repaints may have ended up all mineral red.
