Never heard of a red-orange variation.  They were red, but the color scheme depends on the year of production.  Earlier production cabooses had a darker red cupola.

However, you specifically asked about a 3201 caboose, which would be an unlighted version from 1932.  The color scheme should be approximately the same as the 3211 from 1931. 

c. 1931

Thanks for the info. Yes the 3201 was made in ‘32. I did notice that the copula was a darker red. So I’m thinking the body & roof would be caboose red and the copula would be a deep red. I assume the paint would be acrylic? A big question I have is whether the paint is gloss, semi-gloss, satin, or a matte type finish? I really appreciate your in depth knowledge as I am relatively new to restorations.
