Not black. They were purple and silver
I'm not sure you were old enough to appreciate
rock and roll music of the late 50s.   The ACL's E units
were involved in a phenominal number of grade
crossing collisions and  crews named them
for a popular song of the day -- Flying Purple
People-eaters.                    Harry Bundy
