First, the "Age of Modernism (not Moderism)" cars were not painted tuscan red with yellow stripes. The streamlined cars of the 1938-1941 era were painted tuscan red, with maroon window panels and GOLD LEAF striping. PRR continued to use gold leaf until 1948, changing to duLux gold then and buff in 1953. There is a lot of good PRR information and links at http://kc.pennsyrr.com
