SAL Caboose Red--is Poly S Chinese the correct color?greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread
I have finally gotten around to painting my Overland SAL wood cabooses. I painted one with Polly S SAL Chinese Red over primer gray and it looks awfully orange. I this the right color? The Atlas and Overland SAL wide vision cabs are more of a red red. I have a copy of the old Walthers 1966 paint mixing guide and they show Chinese red only for the green E unit stripe and the switchers. Help? I don't want to keep stripping this poor caboose.
