The paint scheme is a post 1960 version. Note the gothic stenciling, which began circa 1960.

The site wrongly calls this car a Great Northern car. Not so! It is a Western Fruit Car. Unlike the CB&Q, which leased its refrigerator cars to BRE, while WFE was owned by the GN, WFE owned their cars.

Bill and Group,

Is the paint scheme shown on the Accurail website for the WFEX car accurate for an "as-built" original paint scheme or even a mid-1953 scheme? Assuming a change in re-weight dates, of course.
