Title: Differnet shades of green between Pennsy and NP&S 4-6-0s?
Post by: keeping track on December 28, 2017, 02:31:45 PM
Hi --

This past year, I acquired the Holiday Special set 90054 (with Annie engine No. 12 and tender, cars and trolley) to set up for the annual Visit Santa event my organization runs.  The set replaced the rather cheesy decoration train set we'd used in past years.  (Though I confess I did use the caboose and box car rom the decoration set becasue I thought the kids would like to see a variety of cars.)

Needless to say, all the kids and not a few adults loved it!

Our area was once a major rail head, so in future years I'd like to use road names of the various railroads that once terminated here.

One of those lines was the Pennsylvania. (I'm in Jersey City, NJ, so before the station in New York and accompanying tunnel under the Hudson River was built, our waterfront was THE eastern terminus for the PRR, and even in later years, the road's steam engines were a frequent sight in the old terminal at Exchange Place.)

A green tender with the name "Pennsylvania" for a Bachmann Big Hauler is available.  I know it's not an Annie tender, but I can transfer most of the details and live without the back-uplight (or wire for it) .

But my question is whether the shade of green is the same on the Pennsy as on the No. 12 NP&S Annie that I have.

Sorry if that seems a silly question - I know I could repaint, but to be honest I'm looking for an easier way, if possible, to put the Pennsy name on my engine.

If someone can let me know about the color, I will be much obliged.

-- PS:  I also plan to add one of the Blue Comet cars, since Jersey City was also the terminus for the Central Railroad of NJ - the terminal of which still stands as part of what is now Liberty State Park, built on the CNJ's old yard.

Dear KT,
When I painted the prototypes I used Krylon Hunter Green.
I always try to use easily duplicated colors unless we need prototype colors.
(Actually, Santa does use Krylon on the real North Pole & Southern...!)
Have fun!
