I didnt know they had GP9's. What engine are you trying to model? Have a picture?

1802. The HRRC had it for awhile. Its now painted in B&O colors. It was in Railpace Recently. I have video footage of this engine no pics. I model the HRRC and wanted to add this one to the roster. I just want the colors correct. Thanks

Floquil or Poly Scale CP Red and Roof Brown are a very close match.

Check with the P&W Yahoo group. They might be able to help.
Or you can ask the gentleman that runs Highball Graphics. I didn't see any notes on the modern decal sets that listed colors, but he might have the information handy.
