During the post-1967 era the best-known color combo on Great Northern Railway was their Big Sky Blue paint scheme. The sky blue was patterned after Montana’s big blue skies. The white represented the puffy white clouds. And the dark gray-green was a perfect match for the many evergreen trees that covered the landscape. Another popular color scheme on the Great Northern freight equipment that pre-dated the Sky Blue era was something called “Glacier Green”. Here’s one such freight car in a picture taken during April 1968. It shows Great Northern’s Car-Pac equipped box car 39739 resplendent in the early-1960s Glacier Green paint. It’s no mystery that many railroad locations used names derived from people famous in the day for helping to develop lands and communities along those early lines. Naming conventions could include local land features too. But where did the Glacier Green name come from? Here’s a link with the answer or just scroll to my next image: www.flickr.com/photos/jeff_lemke/31526397720/in/photostream/

These extra-wide door box cars were used for appliance loading. The Car-Pac and cushion underframe equipment helped to keep the washers and dryers undamaged during shipment. The extra wide door allowed fork lifts easier access to the interior of the car where they could spin 90 degrees to stack the pallets of appliances floor to ceiling on either side of the door openings. This car was assigned to the Maytag factory in Newton, Iowa.

Depending on the time of year and the angle of the sun the color of these cars could appear quite different on slide film. The pastel green hue didn’t weather very well either and was much better suited to boxcars and covered hoppers than it was to open top cars that could get very dirty depending on what was being loaded into them. Like this iron ore car at Allouez, for example: www.flickr.com/photos/jeff_lemke/25787858212/in/album-721…
