A very nice Foob from Lowell Smith Trains

                   :|  A very nice Foob from Lowell Smith's Executive Line. This UP car uses the business car body that he used on the semi accurate  Ferdinand Magellan Presidential car. The nice yellow area with red stripe over the rear platform is accurate for Union Pacific cars. The one huge goof (in looking at photos in my UP business car book) the end of the car on the platform with the windows and door should be yellow not grey. The yellow color looks spot on to me, I wonder what the KATO re-run COLA yellow color will be. Nate Goodman (Nato).

If that's true, I'm surprised that he got it wrong. He even got the end of the roof yellow, but not the back side of the car?  :|

This might have something to do with it.  Maybe an oversight on Lowel (or MT's) part.. or one of those paint complexity issues that MT wanted to charge extra for.
