CNIS covered hopper- suggested paint color?

I have been doing a little bit of painting and weathering and was planning to do this CNIS scheme.

Any suggestions for a correct paint?  I can never get the various RR reds and browns clear in my mind.

Whatever you go with you should be okay... considering how much variation I've seen in those cars you could go with anything from a chocolate brown to a faded salmon colour...

I would look at

True line trains mineral brown

TLT 010015

Tru color

ATSF brown TCP-19 with a little tuscan red added (tcp-53)

or Rich oxide brown TCP-82
