I would suspect the color they are describing is an orangey fire engine red,

Dennis,

   Would that be a color similar to the early ATSF E1 red/orange?  BLI thinks in terms of sales (don't blame them) so some discussion about the E1 colors was that many people might avoid buying because they thought the color might be wrong.  So on the Hookers is it possible they almost got it right but should have added more red?  All the early tinplate stuff is a bright orange and they may have followed that.  Not all the tinplate stuff was wrong!
