Ok. I checked. The outside of the shade is Hunter Green & the inside is Gray for all cars. None of the cars had Venetian blinds.John Sheridan wrote:Lemme check the book o' specifications later today for the exact color as I am not sure if they were the same for the Parlor & 8600.rsullivan wrote:Mr. Sheridan.

Mr. Michael78651. Mr. Day(day10s) brought up the inverted logo plate in the thread titled Custom Brass FL9 on June 10, 2017. On June 11, 2017, Mr. Wayne Drummond responded with this answer. "Well Richard that was a bit of creative vandalism and was changed back shortly after that photo. I can tell you from experience and others that removing all those screws was no easy task. Just an aberration. If some wants to model that the simple application of a decal will suffice."michael78651 wrote: Oh, I have the decals too. I was thinking of flipping the letters. It would be fun to see if any rivet counters spot it. Then "throw" the book at them when they poo poo the car!
Anyone know how long the car ran with the letters inverted?
OK folks here's the story from the Danburian who saw it all on Berkshire passenger trains (Sorry for the delayed response).michael78651 wrote: Tom, the years you stated are the years I operate.
Here is how I plan to run the parlor car, but I have some questions regarding the Saturday deadhead movement.
Friday Train 144 GCT to Pittsfield
Saturday Train 141 Pittsfield to GCT
Questions: Trains 144 and 141 carried diners too? Does Train 141 bring the parlor and drop it off in Danbury, or (somehow I'm remembering this instead) was deadheading the parlor to Danbury done by RS3? If so, was the RS3 from Pittsfield or Danbury? I'm thinking it would have to be an RS3 from Danbury. What time in the day was this movement made? If the RS3 was from Danbury, did it run light to Pittsfield? Was the parlor stored in Danbury on Saturday until Sunday? If not, which train (141 or 143 or 145 - I don't see how it could be 145) would pick up the parlor in Danbury and take it to GCT? Is this because of lack of steam lines at Pittsfield to prevent holding the parlor overnight in Pittsfield?
Sunday Train 138 GCT to Danbury - picks up parlor in Danbury (if parlor is stored in Danbury) - proceeds to Pittsfield
Sunday Train 147 Pittsfield to GCT - this train picks up the coaches that were dropped off by Train 144 on Friday in Danbury - continues to GCT
Tom (and others), I think the interest in Berkshire passenger operations is for a number of reasons.TomCurtin wrote:BTW, I'm pleased to see modelers out there who are interested in Berkshire passanger operations of that era.
