Color Of Freight Car Trucks

Jim Scott

Have been building a lot of model freight cars of late. One question
that I have is concerning the color of freight car trucks. I have
seen pictures that have the trucks painted the same color as the car,
some black, and of course some just plain dirty because they have that
weathered well worn look. Is it proper to paint the trucks the same
as the car or is there a date when trucks were painted and then after
another date they appeared black, etc.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
