Re: AT&SF BX-3 Paint Suggestion? Circa 1942

Hi Jason,

I use Polly Scale Light Freight Car Red for Santa Fe Mineral Brown, with Grimy Black for the black roof. Wood running boards were Mineral Brown. When the Santa Fe repainted freight cars it repainted the trucks Mineral Brown, so that's the color of your Bx-3's trucks by 1942.

Good luck with your model,
