Subject: Re: [STMFC] IC 1937 AAR Boxcar Color
sides and ends painted IC #11 maroon (what modelers typically call "boxcar
red"). Roofs and underframes were coated with black car cement. Truckspainted
black. White stencils. Wood running boards were coated with "Termineol"(no
idea what color this was). The same scheme was used on 40' and 50' boxcars/auto
cars built from 1937-1941. The source of this information is from ACFbills
of materials, available for review at the Mercantile Library in St. Louis."red-brown"
rather than an oxide shade.repainted
cars. Photos indicate sides and ends were "box car red" but I don't knowabout
roof color. Hope this helps.
