    I got 4 on the way. That's all the budget would allow...and it's a Christmas present! They look nice!

      Were the real cars painted red on the inside?

        Candy, I don't know the LV but the steel and wood in cars of the transition era and earlier were essentially all painted. I think railroads started to skip painting galvanized roofs in the '60s or '70s. In gons and hoppers, the interior paint got damaged early and often, so in-service photos show basically bare wood floors in gons that had them and mostly-rust on the steel parts otherwise.
