Not the case Dan. Red roofs came about on the 15 in 1949. Inspired the Bachmann Big Hauler coaches I think.

I read somewhere that if the car had gold lettering the roof was black and if it had white lettering it had a red roof.

Not an easy answer. I can say for sure that red was not the color until 1949. I would say black, which is what the colorized post cards from the 30s show. There is also this photo, which is from 1948 but shows the equipment in WWII colors.
