B&O Freight Car Red

Gene Deimling <losgatos48@...>

I had read several different accounts as to the proper shade of red
for B&O boxcars in the post-1946 era. The few color photos I recall
seem to lean towards a bright orange/red oxide color. What shade of
Polyscale paint would best fit a wagontop boxcar during the early
1950s prior to the use of the billboard lettering. Would the pre-1946
be similar or more like Polyscale freight car red?
