Exceptions that quickly come to mind, limited to boxcars (hoppers and gondolas often were painted black):

"State of Maine" -- B&M & NH boxcars
Black - Lehigh & New England boxcars.

I fully agree with Nelson that most cars were brown back in 1953 (the year I model).  Exceptions were the MKT, M&W and C&IM yellow boxcars and the reefers in orange and yellow and white.  Those exceptions are all I can think of off the top of my head.  Does anyone else know of a all black or blue or whatever boxcar from the early 1950's?
