To all: Re: N&W Blue color, someone long ago suggested Santa Fe blue for
"new" paint. I have used it and it is certainly acceptable. There is also a
Wabash blue available from at least one manufacturer and it is possible that
N&W units were repainted in ex WAB shops using this color. The effects of
fading, weather and so much else makes the whole thing academic. If it
looks good to you go with it!
