I can't tell you the color code or specific color name, except to say that it was an orange/red. Having said that, I can also tell you firsthand from growing up next to the Providence Main Line in Boston, that New Haven's "orange" usually was displayed as more of an orange tone as it weathered (very soon after the paint was applied). When I saw the current versions of the retro-NH scheme on the Fl9's, I thought that they were way off as all the Fl9's that I saw were much more orange without the red. You can probably find paint specific for NH in a good hobby store.
