    We have recently printed decals for the above boxcars in O and S.  Do you think there would be any desire for them in HO?

... and that photo makes the car appear to be painted black.
Later photos from the 1950's appear to be oxide red.

That's my conclusion, too, since I've never found either a color

photo or NC&StL color documentation. FWIW, I painted my model

mineral red.
