Would it be better if the roof were black: carriage roofs often don't get washed properly and I fear a lot of very dirty green on top. Also the doors seem to be white: this will show up the dirt big time. How about a bit of red on the anti-climbing devices, which might add visibility for on-track personnel?
Aesthetically, I think the new livery is a quantum leap ahead of what it is replacing.
The dirty roofs on the 29000 & 22000 railcars might have more to do with exhaust related carbon deposits, than with dirt accumulation through normal day to day operation. The black "comet tail" from the exhaust on each unit seems impervious to the wash system. Perhaps slight modification to the direction of the exhaust outlet, might help lift the fumes above roof level.
Your suggestion of a bit of red on the anti-climbing devices makes good sense.

I agree. Modifying the exhaust outlet might solve the problem. Unfortunately, it is probably impossible to do this without compromising the smooth roof profile.
