Kokomo Marion & Western car colors?
« on: December 03, 2017, 09:00:37 PM »
Anybody know what the roof color was for this Interurban's cars?   I found that the bodies were Pullman green, but unsure about the roof.  A B/W pic in the Kokomo Tribune shows a lighter color, light grey, white or silver maybe to reflect the suns heat?  Also if someone knows what the lettering color was so I can get decals made.  Painting a Suydam car for my layout.    Thanks  Mike

I am not at all certain if this example applies to Kokomo Marion & Western, but I'll note the THI&E FW&WV car at Illinois Railway Museum has a tan roof.

That car is Fort Wayne and Wabash Valley, not THI&E.
