I found a photo of an old Athearn HO steel CB&Q boxcar with a yellow door. (See attached pic). It looks like it was made in the 50's but can't make a clear reference. (Tried sifting through the old Athearn catalogs posted on HO seeker.) I was curious if this was an original paint scheme or something someone just thought looked cool. I found a discussion board talking about how CN had box cars with different color doors representing their usage (i.e., green = lumber). I finally found these photos of CB&Q boxcars with yellow doors and wondered if there was a similar logic.
