    Hi everyone!

    I'm currently working on the G-scale caboose #905 from LGB in the blue livery (order no. 40710). For whatever reason, LGB decided to make the roofs silver. But as far as I know that's not correct. :cry:

    According to my images, none of which really show the caboose from above, the lower two roofs were painted in the same blue as the rest of the car. One should think the upper roof had the same color. But it looks much darker, almost black. Is that just dirt or was the roof on the look-out of the #905 really not blue?

    :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Tried finding some pics, but couldn't.
    My guess is that not only the cupola(look-out) was black, but maybe the whole roof might of been painted black.

    What's your guess based on if you have no photos? Intuition?
