Underframe - FCC
Trucks - as Elden says in TKM each time he paints a car
"From the ï¿½Instructions for Painting Freight
Equipment Carsï¿½, dated January 13, 1953,
reproduced from the Pennsylvania State Archives, we
see that: ï¿½Paint all metal parts with two coats of
ï¿½Wet-on-Wetï¿½ Freight Car Paint, Acct. 47, Ref.
2383.ï¿½ Except when the car was new and featured
re-conditioned trucks, the trucks were not painted."
So, my trucks are usually grime colored, but on new cars that have been
built recently, I do use FCC as a change of pace.
