A good place to start to get the answers you're looking for is Railway Prototype Cyclopedia #3. In that issue is a great article on boxcar painting which includes an excellent paint chart for many US roads. The issue is out of print, but with luck you might find one.
As has been pointed out many times on this list after some time in service the elements will alter the perceived colour of cars a great deal. I do find though that using the suggested colours in the chart is a good place to start and then weather to taste.
