Mike. 

Many rolling stock roofs that appear black got that way because of the soot, dirt, rain and muck of every day work and weathering. 
Likely more often than not they were painted the same colour as the sides. 
This is a common error made by researchers basing their conclusions on visual photographic evidence rather than on data records and archeological paint scrapings. 

Just saying.

Be sure to have a lineman working on your telegraph lines somewhere:
