Help with MTL Color
« on: July 14, 2014, 01:12:47 PM »

Thought that would get attention  :D   Really, researching these Chessie/B&O safety cabeese and one we would like to do was painted "chartreuse" and coined the Chartreuse Caboose.  Anyone have a color reference for this...our PMS shows a real ugly pea green day glow that seems too much!   Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks again

Contact the Chessie Historical guys. They gave me a bunch of Sherwin-Williams codes to use...

Who said this isn't a cooperative industry?

I can understand wanting confirmation of that color.
In that regard I can't help, however, I would like to
point out that safety colors are eye catching.

Dayglow/lime green is ... um... eye catching.

like the Mr. Yuck stickers.

You are looking for photos and reference materials?

Think Ron Bearden might know something of this.

Joe,

You did not give a road number.

Looking through my collection, it looks like you must be talking about  C-3774?

I have collected multiple photos of every Chessie System Caboose.  Some in fairly new paint and some in old faded paint.

Joe- I called your voicemail at MT and left a message.
