UNION PACIFIC BOX CAR COLOR


WILLIAM PARDIE
 

My "Go To" color for UP freight cars has been either Floquil or Scalecooat OXIDE RED.  Thus is the correct color for cars in the 1940's with yellow lettering.  I seem to recall hearing that cars in the 1930's with white lettering  used a shade with some brown in it.  Can anyone confirm this and if so recommend a Floquil or Scalecoat mix?

Thanks in advance for any help.
