For those that remember old Floquil, it is close the D&H Caboose Red (The special to match the 4 wheel caboose)

The old “D&H Caboose Red” is certainly not a bright red. Instead, it is a rich chestnut kind of boxcar red, and happens to closely match the color SP used for freight cars before and after the transition era. Luckily I was smart enough to buy several bottles while it was still available, and can testify today that I still use it for SP freight cr models. Bright red, it ain’t.
