    In addition to N & HO trains, I also collect diecast 1/24 and 1/18 cars and trucks. I would like to repaint a few pickups in RR colors.

    I am trying to find information on how Great Northern and Erie painted and numbered their pickups.

    What color scheme did the G/N and Erie use?

    Is there a web site that has this info?

    Dan. All I can remember is from the 40's and 50's and almost all their cars were dark green. I was a kid and living in Bellingham Wa. and used to go down near the passenger depot and watch all the trains go through from Vancouver BC to Seattle. Both freight and passengers.

    There must be a better source out there someplace.
