The PRRT&HS printed reproductions of the Bowles Color Drift Control
cards for a variety of PRR colors back in 1992. These colors were
printed, not actual paint chips like the original. Perhaps us B&O
folks could find someone with the PRR group who could give us some
tips on printing reproduction cards.
That said, the PRRT&HS reproduction card for the PRR Red Freight Car
Paint dated October, 1952 is a fairly dark red-brown which would look
very dark under most of our indoor lighting. Did PRR change their
freight car color from a lighter color to this darker red-brown in
the early 1950's.
