Recognize that some good practices aren't always part of FRA regulations.
Here is a list of FRA freight car defects:
I don't see any listing for a painted coupler or a painted wheel. If there's no listing, it can't be written up. If it can't be written up, you can't force a correction.
So it would appear there is no FRA objection to painted couplers and wheels.
Speaking of couplers: I paint mine with Testors flat enamel after they're assembled. I haven't noticed any problems, other than the paint coming off here and there. I would likely have used Floquil if it were still available. Sniff.
