Re: Scalecoat paint


That quote applies equally well to Great Northern "pullman green" from the Empire Builder scheme. It looked black even in person... in sunlight you could detect just the faintest hint of dark olive-brown.

Here too, Athearn Genesis got it right on their F-units. Same for the Challenger and Railway Classics passenger sets.

Freight car content? Well, their express boxcars used the EB scheme..

I think Athearn got it right on their first run of Genesis F
units. Everything else looks too green.
