locked Re: SOU Flatcar Paint Color in 1955

O Fenton Wells

In 1955 my memory says black. I’m not sure when the flats, hoppers and racks went to brown but I thought it was 1957. Could be wrong. Maybe some one who definitely knows will chime in. But you could still see the black paint scheme into the early 1960’s

In 1955 would the Southern 53'6" flatcars in the 51000 series have been painted black or freight car red?
