Maybe. There is quite a bit of evidence that the Rio Grande painted its ope=
n cars mineral red prior top the adoption of the italic (=E2=80=9Cflying=E2=
=80=9D) Rio Grande in late 1939. For sure the 25200-25699 series composite =
Hart ballast gons were mineral red, as were the 25000-25099 series steel Ha=
rt ballast hoppers. Finally, I recently came across a color photo with a 40=
000-42500-series GS gon in the background with a 0 prefix painted mineral r=
ed and still with the Royal Gorge herald.
