Re: PC: New Haven Varnish

The NH post war American Flyer cars had a black roof, and underbody with
orange-red window panels. The only exception to this was the State and I
think Beach series sleepers which had a black roof and underbody. I think
some of the coaches may have arrived with a dark green window panel that
was later painted in the orange by the NH, but I would need to double
check on that.

Some of these cars were later painted in the PC green, and later still
some were on Amtrak in the Amtrak scheme. However, not all of the NH cars
were repainted in the PC scheme. I can remember taking the T when I was
in High School, and riding and seeing many cars still in th NH colors.

The 1938 smooth sided American Flyer cars spotted several paint and color
schemes including some in the PC colors. When the NH first received the
stainless steel cars, some of the older coaches were painted all silver
to match the others!

I hope this helps out!
