It seems that until the mid-50's, passenger cars faded to somewhat of a "tomato-soup" red. Is that a fair interpretation from those of you who remember personally?

and believe N&W red very similar, if not identical to PRR tuscan red. Among HO suppliers, there has been a wide range of 'N&W red' interpretations. One in particular was rose colored in my view - the only reason for calling it 'red' is that it wasn't green or purple. But we each have our own perception or memory.
