C&NW had yellow and green in the 1950's. Maine Central had green ARA boxcars with a large yellow logo.

George,

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?
