      Jason,   315 is painted....  Basic Semi-Gloss Black..  Inside the cab is a "Drab Green" darker then midtone, We paint the smoke box and the stack a graphite empowered silver ( very high temp ) and about $300 per gallon.  And all the accents are painted in a aluminum silver.   The only white, are the lettering on the sides.

       

      This was the standard D&RGW loco colors..

       

      Some engines came from Baldwin with a green painted boiler shell...  But only a couple..

       

      Hopes this helps.

      Dave I have another question a builder is trying to make it exactly as #315 is now.  Can you tell me what the boiler is inside the cab? Is it black wraped and the rear that silver also? Or?

      Thanks Jason
