CP (action?) red paint

Hi guys got a quick question for ya's.I have a AZL GP38-2 and a MTL GP35 that I want to paint CP action red to match the MTL unit I already have (with MTL paint on it).I am not modeling CP in Z but Z scale locos for the Grande Valley Railway are going to be that particular colour.I found a bottle of Poly-Scale at my LHS but it was more like Milwaukee orange than any shade of red I have ever seen.

Anybody got suggestions?

True Line Trains Action Red is excellent and developed with the CP SIG.
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Is True Lines acrylic paint?

Yes.  Same basic formula as Polly-Scale.  I have had perfect success mixing the two.

I notice that True Line says their paints are made by RPM.  They're probably made on the Polly-Scale production line.  If RPM is discontinuing Polly-Scale I wonder what, if any, effect that will have on True Line?

Or maybe True Line can buy the rights to the PS colors and just change the labels?

True Lines have a website? I'm drawing a blank looking for a US dealer. :(
