Well, picking nits, we like to think of PRR's freight car color as an oxide RED, not brown 😉

GN plywood boxcars - Omaha orange and green
Georgia RR - silver

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?
