Re: covered hopper grays

Greg,

RP Cyc 27 focuses on the ACF 1958 cuft covered hoppers.  Being a Steam Era Freight Car List I am mostly interested in the late 1940s to early 1950s.  Railroad is not mentioned as the idea is to find a range of grays applicable to covered hoppers just like the range of FCC now being offered.  Also many of these covered hoppers would have been in SHPX lease service.  What does "medium gray shade" mean when converting to available paint colors?  Most available model grays are either RR locomotive specific or military FS type colors.
