Re: Timken Freight Cars

In the 1950's.Athearn produced both red and yellow-side Timken Roller Bearing metal car kits in HO and O scale. In 1952 I bought an HO red-side kit. Now I'm in O scale and have have acquired the O scale red-side and yellow-side Athearn kits. Neat cars. I, too, would like to know if these cars followed the prototype. Anyone know for sure??

Early Athearn (Globe?) steel/brass sides boxcars kits had a colorful
silver and blue (I think, maybe others) Timken box car. While I know the
car was probably not correct did they just invent the colors or were they
copied from something?
