I have not checked this out -- yet-- but this came up the first of January. John Rhodes uses (or suggested using) the C&NW green. If it turns out to be off a little then it becomes a candidate for 'heavy' weathering (ie: rust, dirt, slight damage).

> I am currently building several N&W MW cars and need to find out the correct color of green that they were painted. From my photos it appears to be a close match to Hunter Green, but I know that colors in photos can be incorrect. If anyone knows what the true color of green the car shop uses for the old N&W MW cars, the information would be extremely helpful.
