As-delivered paint scheme, Ann Arbor 1400-1409


Mark Heiden
 

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for some information on the as-delivered paint scheme of
Ann Arbor Railroad PS-1, 40ft boxcars, from series AA 1400-1409. These
cars were part of Pullman-Standard Lot 8492, built in June of 1959.
This lot also included cars for AA parent Wabash, series WAB 7600-7609.
The Wabash cars appear to have been delivered with black ends, roof and
underframe. Did this also apply to the Ann Arbor cars?

Thanks,
Mark Heiden
