   All colors matched to original railway equipment in the collection of the Orange Empire Railway Museum.  Paint samples were matched to Pantone's #1000 Color Formula Guide (1995) for coated stock. All colors were "right on" except for the MTA's "Light Green" No. 5555C which was the nearest match we could find.  For White use "Pure White", Silver is a bright metallic silver, gold is a metalic gold. Green and creme 1929 LARy colors are based upon very small samples and might be off.
