Erie Fowler boxcar paint help


Charlie Duckworth
 

I’ve been upgrading an Accurail 36’ Fowler boxcar to match my resin models; new steel roof, wire grab irons and using a Westerfield decal set.  Doing a search on Erie boxcar paint on the group I came across a thread advising to use ATSF mineral brown.  Was the entire carbody brown or did the roofs and underframe get painted black as the steel cars?  I’m building the car as it would look in the early 1950’s. 


thanks for any insight
