DT&I Painting Guide

Equipment Paint Colors



What is DT&I Orange??

Freight Equipment Colors

Something to keep things in perspective:

Robert Frank sent me an email with this short anecdote-

"I met a fellow a few years ago who worked for the DT&I down in Ironton. He
told me that when they needed to paint a caboose they simply went to the
hardware store and bought whatever red paint was on sale."

So if you REALLY want to be prototypical and paint your models the same way the DT&I
painted their equipment, use whatever color is close and already in your paint box; don't go out
and spend money on a new bottle of paint.

And just be glad the locos weren't painted DGLE....(sorry, slobbering Pennsy fans)
