Re: B&O stock cars.
Some years ago, say 10 or 12, I bought one of the Overland B&O Pig and Sheep
Cars, S-2, #11400-114066 (this is off the box, I doubt there were 112,000 of
them).
I wrote to the B&O Society, this was before I became a member, and eventually
recieved a nice reply with copies of photos, for lettering, and a note
indicating the cars were red, and that Floquil zinc chromate primer was a good
approximation (I subsequently used this color on a couple of Sunshine wagontops to
good effect).
