You have certainly got my cogs whirring, so much so that I have dug out my original Farish pullmans, I didn't realise I had so many, 4 brakes and eleven dining cars  :goggleeyes:

Having had a trawl around google, there doesn't seem to be definitive about the colour of the roofs, white or grey? or did they used to run older with refurbished stock, TBH I think I will do them with white roofs like yourself, as it adds that little bit extra class in my eyes.

Take a look at Pullman Profiles 1, 2, and 3, although you will have to get a copy of volume 2 through your local library as I did.  (Amazon offering at 850  :worried:)

White is safe as most photos from the 1920,s and 30's certainly were white and probably white but dirty after that.  Post war they seem to be grey, possibly as a lot of the Pullman kitchens were drafted as mobile canteens and painted grey, but this is a guess and some were clearly still white.

A final post.  It's an approximation, however I have added a bonded baggage truck to my Golden Arrow, based on a 14 Ton container truck. It needs some detail and transfers, but it looks the part.

Pullman coach roofs painted white as in all ex-works photos, gradually weathering to a dirty grey and finally a relatively dark grey colour.
I suppose the colour you choose to paint your models roofs will depend on how long you would like to suggest it has been in service since its last overhaul.

I prefer "faded" rather than dirty white, showing some age but not too much. :)

Just finished the mods to my Holland-Africa Line with Golden Arrow plates.
