Keith, someone asked me several years ago about why I painted the Silver City ore cars an "intermediate blue" color when they were "probably" red oxide, etc. The blue color came from an old SCPA&M post card photo that had been "colorized" way back when-the ore cars were blue and the caboose was a dark red (caboose red?). I thought these would be good colors to use on my rolling stock...nobody alive knows what color they were anyway! A friend used red oxide on his SC models and when he "loaned" them to me, I kept their color. Makes a neat train with some red and some blue cars trailed by a red caboose. The flats, etc. are unpainted, weathered wood which I suppose is OK also.

My 2 cents...
Woodie
