Could someone explain why the bottom 2/3 of the stock cars was gray and the top 1/3 red? If this was lime or something similar used as a disinfectant, should we be doing something similar on stock cars of other roads?

Lots of Canadian Pacific boxcars and a few stock cars:

I have no connection with the seller.   Just happened upon these and wanted to share.
