As noted, InterMountain did paint the roofs black for their CB&Q covered hoppers.

Just to chime in on these cars. We worked closely with the BRHS and InterMountain, and the consensus was to have them in the all-mineral red scheme. If they originally had black roofs and bottoms, it didn't last too long. We queried this list before the project, but didn't receive any information. That's not a jab. But we tried our best to get things right for customers.
