Re: ATSF freight car red

I have over the years made up 3" x 5" colour cards, with three (captioned by maker/their colour description) swatches of paint on each.  With over a hundred swatches now on hand, I can match existing paint on models when changing out parts like rooves, or commercial paints to prototype photos.

If a paint is discontinued, I also have reference for matching or approximating it with a currently available paint.

I am approaching "fifty shades of" FC Red on those swatches...
