Robb is accurate in using the ATSF blue ( plus a couple of drops of black). Most brass and model companies like OMI, Atlas and Athearn use this color choice.

I have used it for years as other professional painters. By the way most professional painters will use Scalecoat paint as the pigments are finer than other paint brands.

Key and other importers have used Scalecoat before they turned to automotive paint that is now used on brass.

ATSF Blue is another option. It's what all the model companies spec (or its Pantone equivalent). I darken it just a bit by adding a few drops of black to the small jar.

I didn't like the 8103 when it was released, but now that it has a nice layer of coal dust it looks good.
