Norfolk Southern color


Louis C. Whiteley <octoraro1@...>
 

Can anyone suggest appropriate colors for the Norfolk Southern XM-3
(25500-series, Magor, 1942) and XM-5 (27000-series, P-S, 1947) boxcars
as delivered? I appreciate any leads -- formula, color photo source,
or "similar to . . ."?

Thank you.

Lou,
I'm forwarding this to the NMRA Division near Raleigh, N.C. They just
had a run made of an original NS boxcar.

A great photo from a weathering standpoint, too! How about those toe
scuffs up the ladder, as well as the faded lettering?
