Re: Tru-Color formula for Pennsylvania FCC circa 1940 - any advice?

I don’t use Tru-Color but I can show what Pennsy Freight Car Color I use for my 1926 focus. I lean towards an orange shade like the GLa hoppers in this image. 

I spray Vallejo Amaranth red from their Panzer Aces line. 

I’ve rarely seen a new, or clean, Pennsy freight car in early photos. My Pennsy models all receive a liberal application in the weathering factory.

I saw that color in their line  but I’m looking for a mix for the earlier color used before 1945.
