Is there a close paint match for the E-L maroon, that LifeLike used on locos?
 Thanks,

For some treason I think I recall something about the Accu-Paint Boston & Maine engine maroon (as opposed to passenger car maroon) being similar.  But I'm not 100% sure.  Of course Accu-Paint is long gone, but Tru-Color paint might be similar.

No idea. Luckily, I get it from a local hobby store.

Joe,
I get my TCP from Highball Graphics. He doesn't ship out of USA except to Canada. https://highballgraphics.com

Thanks, Jon. But I still refer to my original question, about matching the LL E/L maroon.

Arizona Hobbies.

And not that a color on the monitor matches the actual paint but you can get an idea here

Yes, you can't trust what you see on monitor, or printed paint charts. I just need to do a little touch up, maybe I'll experiment with paints I have on hand.
 Thanks,
