As I continue to slowly acquire PFE cars for my 1940’s era Big Boy, I’ve noticed during research that many PFE trains had a few livestock cars right behind the engine. I’ll assume the front placement was so that the crew could tend to the animals. Unfortunately, what the B&W pictures and videos I’ve seen do not reveal is the color of the livestock cars. I’m of the unsubstantiated opinion that the livestock cars were brown during the 40’s then later changing to yellow, possibly around the same post-war time as was done to the Caboose’s.
Thoughts, model recommendations?
