Railway Prototype Cyclopedia Vol. 3 has a chart for "Box car painting" which lists Accupaint #12 as recommended for the Red-browns of many railroads.

Since Accupaint is no longer available, what have you found to produce the same color as their #12?

Does Vallejo have anything?

TruColor has adapted the Accupaint line, but they did not copy over the color name/numbers from Accupaint.  Now days, Trucolor has many variations of "Box car color" in the TCP-180 to TCP-224 colors.    Which one matches the old Accupaint #12?

Thanks for any assistance.

Best regards,

David Turner
