Thanks for the reply. This information at least allows plausibility
to simply replacing the brakes and data, at least until such time as
pictures surface. For my purposes that's good enough. However there
is a suggestions on the RPI site that these cars were painted with a
tan paint and not red. Anyone know more? -Jim Pasquill
Hard to say in the absence of photos from the era you model. However,
later photos of the cars all show them to be mineral red. And the RPI
site, though sometimes useful, is far from being a paragon of accuracy.
