The Paint Code link is great.  And I found that the "yellow" that was used for the lettering and striping on SP&S's Geeps was the same as B&M Gold.  Kewl!  Sure wish there were more entries.

In a sort of answer to paint color variations caused by a widespread rail system, I will note that GN painted all their passenger cars in one shop.  Thus there would have been no geographical variations.
