As with most issues of color, you need to specify a time frame. When new,
these cars were a very brown red. I used Poly Scale Roof Brown with a bit
of Boxcar Red. That might be a bit too brown, but my M-26 in that color
looks pretty good. Post WWII, the B&Os color became significantly redder.
On Virtual Modelers the consensus seems to be Boxcar Red pre 1945 adn
Zinc Chromate post 1945.
