I do not think any of the New Haven's food service cars were ever repainted into Penn Central Paint. One stainless steel grill did get leased to the D&H for a few months in the late 1960's.rsullivan wrote: Mr. Ed(nhhe52). I can only surmise that the sales of the previous stainless steel streamline cars in the PC livery didn't sell enough to justify the costs for that scheme as an additional scheme. I would suggest that if a modeler wanted to have some dining cars in PC livery, that they buy several McGinnis Orange - no skirts item#132018 unnamed.
