N&W MOW Green

A few years back (2003/2004) I shot a couple of company tank cars in solid green in Buena Vista, VA,
they had faded the same way the 2 Bay Covered Sand Hoppers have, to a light NYC/PC Jade Green.
Unfortunately, they are in slide boxes packed away, otherwise I'd attach them. I'll see if I can
dig them up over the weekend and scan them.

I am not arguing that they did not exist in black, as you've got one in your book in black from 1995.

The MofW tank cars were black all over. Jim NicholsNW Modeling List wrote:
I have some of the Athearn equipment too. I'm going to leave them as purchased MOW green, considered 'close enough' for sitting on a siding. I may renumber any duplicates. Thanks for the tip, John Rhodes, on the C&NW green. I'll have to check that out. Without going into the Long inventory, I believe the Athearn MOW tank car (at least the kit) is black on the bottom half which will be incorrect.

I have the Athearn MOW car (looks like a RPO) and flat (looks like a N&W FD flat car) They are already in green with N&W markings. Do I need to repaint these cars? BTW, I model around 1956.
