Was this the "mule hide roof" used on passenger equipment in the

advertised "Mule Hide Roofing" for barns, etc. (I was hoping that
there would be a lathe or milling machine or two in there, but it was
a restaurant themed on crop harvesting-type machines instead!)

There is a Mule-Hide Roofing Co... "Not a kick in a million feet"...
that makes membrane roofing products for architectural use, but I'm
not aware they had a product specific to the railroad industry. They
may have at one time. Do you have a specific reference in company
documents? The name still won't tell us what it is, as they use their
trade name across a whole variety of products. See:
