There is a tentative arrangement to utilize the existing J&S trucks and build new, appropriate trucks for coach 9.  There's still some details to settle- so for now I'll post more details in the members only section.

See ya

The door post/trim on coach 3 sanded down to the original factory paint.

Very neat picture! The thin layer of Edaville yellow really stands out.

So was the original color really brown, or perhaps maroon "lake" ?

we held up color chips to see what we were looking at. of the chips we had the "Kilz" color LM 100 (b3) "Incence Stick" looks really close -- think UPS truck Brown. which is "Pullman Brown" according to Google.

I also spent some time sifting through Jackson and Sharp images and found some good shots of similar cars.  This one shows the striping really well. http://delaware.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/p15323coll6/id/3733/rec/1

So Eric, do you want to paint your new model coach in "WW&F Brown" as a test of what it would look like on the prototype?...
