A.E. Staley tank car paint schemes


Tim O'Connor
 

I have two Intermountain Type 27 tank car paint schemes - black car,
and a silver car. And I have a Proto2000 Type 21 paint scheme - orange.
I'm pretty sure there were orange cars, and WHITE cars in the 1950's.
But I've never seen a silver (aluminum) car, and the only black car
photos I've seen are from the 1930's...

So my questions: Is there a chronological order to Staley paint schemes?
Are the Intermountain cars foobies? Did multiple Staley paint schemes
co-exist in the 1950's?

Thanks
