According to the Baldwin build specifications, the jacket not painted green but planished iron, unless anyone has reason to believe that the order was amended prior to construction. That being said, painted jackets were extremely uncommon at the time. The painting style for the "Elkton" and her five sisters (cab, tender, domes, etc.) was specified to be "olive green & aluminum." This was certainly no custom style ordered by the F&CC, for a great many other locomotives ordered throughout 1894 and 1895 sported the same colors.

Green locomotives were not a new sight on the Colorado narrow gauge by any means when these engines were delivered to the F&CC. For example, the D&RG had ordered many locomotives in "olive green & color," including but not limited to a batch of forty Class 56 consolidations just 15 years prior in 1879.
