Seeking paint suggestions for CNW, D&H, SOU freight cars

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for paint suggestions, preferably water-based, for the
following freight cars, circa 1948:

CNW single-sheathed boxcar, series 144700-147698, even nos. only,
built 1926. There is a photo on the pay side of the NEB&W website:

sheathed/Bettendorf-types/CNW-Bettendorf-xm-37-cyc.jpg

D&H rebuilt USRA panel-side hopper, series 3221-4200, rebuilt
starting in 1934. There is a photo on the pay side of the NEB&W
website:

USRA.jpg

SOU 40' PS-1 boxcar, series 23487-26486, built 1948. There is a
builder's photo in the 1949 Car Builder's Cyclopedia.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mark Heiden
