.....well sorta.
I have before me a copy of D&RGW Standard Practice which reads as follows:
D.& R.G.W.R.R.
STANDARD PRACTICE 57-L-179
11-1-37
Painting Locomotives And Tenders
Smoke Box ------------ Staybrite Front End Paint
Firebox -------------- Staybrite Front End Paint
Cylinders ------------ Locomotive Black Enamel
Pilots --------------- Locomotive Black Enamel
Runnng Gear ---------- Locomotive Black Enamel
Jackets -------------- Jacket Enamel (Dark Olive
Green)
Cab (outside)--------- Black Duco
Tenders Black Duco
Cylinder Heads (small power)- Aluminum Paint
Number Plate Bead ----------- Aluminum Paint
Tire Rims ------------------- Aluminum Paint
Edge Of Running Board ------- Aluminum Paint
Cab (inside) --------- Cab green, medium
Signed by Chief Mechanical Officer
--------------- end ---------------------
Staybrite Front end paint is a dark metallic grey flat color (like a silver/flat black mix).
"Duco" is (was) a paint line sold by Dupont.
I know we're been through this before, but I thought I'd share this with you good folks. - Notice, no references to freight power, narrow gauge, etc. But, as we all know, the paint dept., NEVER disobeyed instructions..... <img class=" />
