Woodie,

Well, you had an image showing the light blue cars - perhaps the tinting of the old photo was based on what the actual color looked like, and not an artist's imagination. Reds were very common, too, but so was black or a combination thereof. That is one part of narrow gauge modeling I have always enjoyed - typical limited amounts of information available, so we modelers get to do a lot of fun research and educated guessing.

That was an odd design for Gilpin Cars to begin with. I always wondered if the Silver City guys took a look at the GT cars, and decided to build an improved car. The Silver City cars certainly were a lot more robust - too bad none survived.
