Not by any stretch of the imagination Rob.

Virginian stations were first orange with white trim, see restored Roanoke station. Or after the mid 1940s a grey with a medium brown trim.

I don’t know where the blue came from.

However, this is a recreation, not rebuilt, the original building was torn down in the 1970s. This was recreated by plans I provided to the architect many years ago.
