One side photo in Santa Fe Freight in Color...the Series by Stephen Priest and
Thomas Chenoweth on page 31 appears to be painted in mineral brown, including
the roof.  I would infer the ends are also mineral brown from the parts in
view.  Ladders are not clear to my eyes.

Subject: [STMFC] Sunshine 69.4 - ATSF Bx-58

Greetings all;

I am currently building a Sunshine kit #69.4 ATSF Bx-58 boxcar for a friend. I
have tried the search function here on the group to see if any discussion has
occurred regarding these cars, but have not had any luck. I was hoping to find
some pointers to photos for reference. If anyone can help out, especially with a
B-end view showing the end ladder (the kit instructions don't provide any
indication of exact length of the ladder, only that it was "cut down to 7

Also, I would like to confirm that the roof was black, the carlines were black,
and the running board was NOT black (unpainted wood or weathered Mineral red?).

Were the ends black (I think not)?

Any insight would be most appreciated.
