I have been working on building a wooden northern pacific caboose from ambroid and I am having a tough time determining how to paint it as there are several conflicting resources. I think I am aiming for 1954, as I understand that is when the Lowey passenger scheme was first introduced. Best site I have found is
It calls a C3 paint scheme for the year, and says to only paint the coupalo roof black and leave the rest of the caboose box car red. I cannot find a single example of a model being painted this way where the different roofs are not the same color. Any insight to this would be helpful.
