Floquil or Poly Scale CP Red and Roof Brown are a very close match.

Providence & Worcester Railroad Colors Help

I am looking for a good paint match to the current modern Providence and Worcester Railroad paint scheme. I'm having trouble finding a red that will match. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Check with the P&W Yahoo group. They might be able to help.
Or you can ask the gentleman that runs Highball Graphics. I didn't see any notes on the modern decal sets that listed colors, but he might have the information handy.
