Re: Passenger car and caboose colors
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
In the 1890s the cabooses were painted a mineral color (red-brown) and the passenger equipment was painted Tuscan. These colors are the standard Southern Pacific colors of the era, they were applied to SPC cars as they were repainted post-1887.
Take a look at the color cards here: http://www.pacificng.com/template.php?page=roads/ca/spc/index.htm the colors are shown with a Pantone Matching System number and a color representation of what it should look like. If you print the cards with a good laser jet on quality gloss / semi-gloss paper you should get a representation that is close enough.
