Paint & Lettering: Cars were painted with Pittsburg Synthetic Red, a freight car brown with more of an oxide hue than earlier cars: TCP-926.
Be sure and add some TCP-179 gray to replicate normal oxidation from being exposed to the elements. This included underbody and truck
side frames. Roof was coated with black car cement. Lettering was all white stencil paste.
