Does anyone know what the original color was for the Roma Wine tank
'reefers' (they looked like reefers without ice hatches but
tanks inside)? It's somewhere between purple and burgandy from what
I've been able to find, but haven't found a diffinitive answer.
any idea as to how to match the paint color? Thanks for any help...
I agree it's between purple and magenta; I have a small color photo

Due to the complexities of the Ed Mines filing system I can locate
that photo about as easily as I can find Jimmy Hoffa, but I do know
the probable source of the photo - Henry Maywald. A lot of his color
photos have appeared in all color freight car books.

Anyone on the list know how to get in touch with him?
