Underframe and truck colors for N&W boxcar

Mark Heiden

Hello everyone,

I've got a model of a Norfolk & Western B-1 steel boxcar ready for
painting. A prototype photo of this car can be found at:


This model will be finished as a car repainted shortly after World War
Two. Does anyone know what color the underframe would have been
painted, and if the trucks were painted the same color as the rest of
the car?
