Postby Alcoman » Wed Mar 14, 2012 1:19 pm

I have been asked to help restore a CP steel caboose that is on display on the County Fair grounds in Ballston Spa to CP colors..

What I need is a painting diagram for a CP steel caboose. What shade of yellow to use? I cannot find anything on the internet so far.

Anyone have have such info?

I would suggest you get into contact with Rapido Trains, producers of fine railroad models. They have a great R&D department that would probably be happy to share that information with you.

Call CP historian in Calgary and ask if she can get the colour from the mechanical department. The historian is named Kate Hill.
