Re: PRR standard red oxide paint and GLa trucks

Paint - era? (pre WWI, post WWII...?), cars?

Trucks - no "crown" trucks on GLa hoppers... after all, that's a 70 ton
truck and a 50 ton hopper <G>. As built, the cars rode on arch bar
trucks. Later, most used the ubiquitous PRR 2D-F8 truck. I don't think
TKM has covered GLa cars yet.

I'm building a few P-Company cars and would like suggestions as to the
best model paint match for them.

Also, would GLa hoppers have been fitted with Crown trucks? And did TKM
ever carry an article on the GLa cars?

Thanks in advance,

Steve Lucas.
