At least PC could make up their mind as to what color to paint things. 
Unlike the CSX's and BNSF's of today.  CSX has calmed down and is doing
a good job of repainting everything.  Meanwhile, BNSF paints things in
some of the most garish and funky paint scheme one can imagine.  It's a
wonder the stockholders don't go balistic over the expense.  Oh well, it
does make life interesting for the fans.  

But black has it's merits.  Look how easy it is to paint on a model. 
Covers everything!  No fuss, no muss, just spray it on!
