Conrail Structure/Tower colors

Postby caylorman » Tue Aug 21, 2012 3:16 pm

I'm trying to get a better idea on what shades of blue Conrail painted its towers and other buildings for a modeling project. Unfortunately, most pictures I have of Conrail painted buildings have such bad paint on them that it's hard to match samples to. I thought originally that they were just a light and dark shade of Conrail Blue for the base and trim, respectively. However, in some photos this appears to be correct, while others make the trim appear to have a greyer or greener hue to the darker blue trim color.

Just curious if anyone know what colors Conrail actually used, and even better, what mixes of Polly S or equivalent pain could be used for modeling.
