Tony;



I personally have zero PRR cars with painted trucks; probably none
for any
other railroad, either.



Painted trucks on the PRR, at least in my timeframe, were something
I don't
remember seeing, nor do I have photos showing them. The most
recent photo I
have seen with painted trucks was dated 1954, but I cannot assert
that I know
that to be a comprehensive answer; in modeling a big fleet, you
could
conceivably justify a few in earlier timeframes, since you have
photos to
justify it. <snip>

Elden,

Bobs's Photos offers a color photo of GLa 219656, recently repainted
with a P50 2-49 reweigh date and the trucks painted the FCC.
