Painting color help

I'm working on 2 resin kits and about ready to paint but, not sure what colors to use.
One model  is 53'6" 51101-51600 series Southern Flat,  the other is a B&O(ex BR&P) wood side gon which will be lettered for the B&O. 
I model early 1950s.  Thanks for your consideration.

Fred, I think those B&O gons were black through their service lives, even when they were BR&P cars.
