This is disappointing to hear, especially because Branchline has done such 
a good job with other paint schemes I have seen.  Do you think they used 
the same color of Tuscan used on the Pennsy cars they have issued?  I don't 
think it would hurt to contact them about this.  They seem to want to do 
things right.
