MTL Passenger Car Interior Colors
« on: June 11, 2014, 03:14:41 PM »

Working on my collection of Pullman green MTL passenger cars I've noticed that all of the interiors are the same color of green. Assuming that MTL did extensive research to determine the most common interior color, I'm wondering if any of you Pullman experts can advise alternate colors or even accents for the existing green?

There are a bunch to pick from. These are the ONLY ones I know of that you do not have to mix and tint yourself. They are nice paints and well researched.

Thanks Randy, I guess what I really needed to know was that there were several colors of interiors inside Pullman Heavyweights determined by the purchasing railroad. I'm not modeling a specific railroad with matching cars, but a contemporary museum/tourist road with an eclectic collection of rolling stock from different railroads.

We have a similar railroad here in SoCal, the Fillmore and Western RR which is part of the inspiration for my shortline.

I'm not sure how many different colors were used on the heavyweights but the colors listed cover nearly all the colors used on both light and heavy cars.

Pictures are about the best way to determine the vestibule colors anyhow..

James,
I can't speak for the Pullman interiors, but the Pennsy ones are off.  The Pennsy heavyweight vestibule interiors were plum post-1950 and Tuscan prior to that, but the interior seats were not the dark maroon as depicted in the MTL models.  I suspect a similar scenario existed regarding the Pullman green cars, and most likely the interior colors were not a set standard.
