Re: Any recommendations for Minneapolis & St. Louis boxcar green?

One must be careful when trying to replicate the M&StL's green. The
original(fresh, clean, unweathered) was green towards the blue end of
the spectrum. Weathered it was anything but green with a hint of blue.

The CNWHS's custom run of 37 AAR box cars was right for a freshly
painted car.

I would say C&NW green w/ a wee bit of yellow added. Or start w/
Pullman Green and add C&NW green to it... But then, I don't model
brand new cars for the most part.
