You may want to check the N&W Caboose book from Bower & Brewer. The actual color may be listed on a lettrering diagram. You could also check the Archives as an original Paint ID # maybe available, which can be color matched at Home Depot, which is what Joe Shaw helped me with for the depot portion of my basement.

I know this opens a HUGE can of worms, but need some help.

A friend is building some CF class cabooses in 1:32 scale (3/8 in/ft) to go with the Fine Art Models Class A locomotives and various models of the J, both electric and live steam.

I can provide him with Floquil SIGNAL RED, and we have looked at ScaleCoat SANTA FE CABOOSE RED.

I am looking for suggestions of Scalecoat colors that are more appropriate.   Please consider that these will be operating OUTSIDE in sunlight, not inside under incandescent, fluorescent, or LED  lighting.

Thanks in advance.
