Has anyone found a paint match for the green color used on the C&S and other Bachmann passenger cars? I need to do some touch-up work on an observation car 'modified' by somebody else.

Pullman Green by Floquil is a good match for the unlettered Bachmann coaches I have found.  But the C & S color is a bit darker it looks to me and I have not tried to match it.

Thanks for the input. I looked thru my paint supplies and located a bottle of Polly Scale 'pullman green'. I tried it on a sample piece of plastic and found that it is definitely is too dark for the C&S cars that I have.  Sad So off to the hobby store ... again. Lee in Tucson
