Re: Color of the PRR X31 Boxcar at Cajon Pass



You are correct.? It is a late '60's nearly brown paint color.? The PRR freight car color shifted dramatically towards brown after the adoption of synthetic pigments and continued to move towards brown until the end.

Does any one wish to comments about the color of the PRR X31 boxcar also
captured in this sequence of photos from Cajon Pass.

It is less like the bright oxide red that some freight car people
describe. The colors do not appear to be shifted in these reproductions.
