To the group,
Starting in the late 1940s the Katy quite using yellow paint on new and repaint cars. Repainted single sheath cars tended to be close to Scalecoat oxide red then the color shifted to a darker shade refered as tuscan red. New cars were refered to as being painted tuscan red. These cars tended to be darker or closer to PRR tuscan.
The plainer red freight cars (excluding passenger equipment) did not start showing up until the Barringer years. Deramus had an adversion to painting freight equipment but would cast his curse on the passenger fleet.
So as Tony and Richard said to me at Naperville one year "If it looks right to you who cares?"
Later gents,
