Modeling the B&O on the east coast means a limited number of SP cars.  Two are getting ready to see service on my layout and are literally primed. I am seeking your input on a decent color match. Not exact, just decent. Attached are photos of recent in-progress builds sprayed with Vallejo Brunt Red 70.814 much thinned for airbrushing. What are your thoughts on adjusting the color? I added a Kadee UP boxcar and a black hopper for color reference.  Thank you for your input. 
 

Both Tru-Color and Star Brand make excellent SP paint matches. I have been following the efforts on-line to come up with blends of Vallejo colors for freight cars, but am not aware of a consensus yet. I do use and like Vallejo, but have not tried to paint a freight car with it.
