What do you all recommend for the correct colors for painting B&M stations?  I'm finally settling down to building something, and thought I ought to at least get the colors close.

RE: Paint colors of 1950s B&M structures

Yes, this has been discussed here before, and I've participated. In
my opinion, the usually-suggested "depot buff" is way too dark for B&M
structures. I use Poly Scale colors, and for the "beige" color, I
prefer "TH&B (Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo) Cream". For the maroon
trim color, I like "Milwaukee Road Maroon".
