I've used Floquil ATSF Mineral Brown, but there is no stock Poly Scale match
for this paint. The closest you will come to it is to add a few drops of
Poly Scale ATSF Red to Poly Scale Boxcar Red. Alternatively, you can use
Poly Scale Mineral Red without mixing, gut it's not quite 'red' enough.

Can someone tell me which Poly Scale paint color is best for a Santa Fe box
car in the 1950s? I,m doing a 50 foot double door automobile car with
map/train name. Thanks for the help.
