Southern Railway help

Having difficulty finding definitive word on the kind of gold paint for lettering and stripes used on the Black and white SW1500's.  I found a post that noted Dulux gold being used after 1978 on their engines.  The models I have in stock stock are bright gold.  any ideas.

Thanks

Joe

According to this site it was gold metallic:

There is little info here: http://southernmodeler.info/PaintDiagrams.htm

But if you contact Allen Stanley as mentioned on that page maybe he can help:

Better yet, one of the SOUTHERN fans on RW can answer.  :D

Bob Graham knows Southern like few other people and what he has written can be taken as Gospel.  He has shared a wealth of information regarding insights dealing with Southern Railway over the years and I am grateful for his wealth of knowledge!!!

For those who don't know who HOsam was, his name was Sam McCall and he was a master modeler and custom painter.  His website has a wealth of information that deals with all sorts of subjects... well worth visiting when seeking information on Southeastern roads.  He passed back in 2003 but his great site lives on and that is something to be grateful for!!!  His information is well worth looking at, to say the least...

Oh boy, Joe did you let the cat out of the bag? Can we expect a few Southern SW1500's from Micro-Trains?

That's what I figure.


Hmm... my figure is
still svelte...

Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

I'm holding out for bankruptcy blue. Until then, my wallet safe.
No farms, no food.

We will have to do the shell with the railing on the car and not on the sill to do a Rock Island...unless you know something I don't (very probably :)  )

While you are doing up some carbody handrail units, don't forget about the P&LE  :D

Just a few samples of P&LE SW1500 switcher fleet. Note: The P&LE only had 10 SW1500's with the Flexi-coil trucks (1534 - 1543), the remainder of the fleet had AAR switcher trucks.

Units rebuilt in the 1500 series received the full-length handrails on the sills:

For all of the PC foamers, IHB's last order (9223-9227) was diverted to PC with IHB paint and numbers, but with PC lettering:

A River City Rambler would be a fun one some day.  I think there was a Southern version at one point?
