I ordered on of the Branchline Trains 12-1 sleepers, after seeing ad 
pictures of it on the net, painted in the, what I call "tomato soup" red of 
N&W Tuscan Red passenger paint.  I was very happy to see someone doing N&W 
passenger cars that were not in the IHC "brown" color.  But I was dismayed 
when the car arrived painted in that same brownish-tuscan color IHC used on 
it's passenger cars.  What a shame.  And how in the world did they use the 
right colors for the label on the box, and for their online paint scheme 
photo, but not on the actual model?
