John,
If new Wabash box cars built in 1948 by ACF were indicative of repainted box cars of the period, then the truck side frames should be #10 Wabash Red.

Gents,

I'm finishing up a model of a late-40s Wabash single-sheathed auto box car. What color should the trucks be? Black, or the carbody color?

Thanks,
