Please - maroon, schmaroon - I'm sure the color of the N&W passenger
cars was Tuscan to begin with, but by the time they arrived in Maine,
the color was closer to B&M maroon - or burgundy - or reddish purple.
Please remember that my inquiry was about the cars themselves, not the
color. I am not qualified to be an N&W rivet counter. By the way,
whatever the original color, it was most handsome!!!!! Thanks much for
publishing my inquiry.
