The car data on the side of this NP boxcar has been re-painted and it sure does not look like NP boxcar red:

It still can be NP boxcar red……….

The old paint is faded  and dulled while the new paint fresh from stores is going to be fully bright and glossy.

We all have seen remarked older cars where new paint is used for just the area of the new marks. There is a real contrast between the newly re-painted patches and the aged original paint.

Best to ya,
