Eagle Merchandise cars


Tim O'Connor
 

Question - what color or colors were the doors on Eagle Merchandise box cars?

Were they solid yellow, solid gray, or a combination of yellow and gray?

Thanks!

Per the MP painting diagram for the Eagle Merchandise cars the roof panels were unpainted but the ribs were painted Eagle gray.  Unfortunately the roof walk came undone as I unwrapped the model.   Initially these cars were only for local service on the MP and T&P but in the later 1950’s they were allowed offline in certain O-D pairs (LCL freight house to LCL freight house)
