ACL PURPLE? : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

After having recently purchased the new Atlas GP7 and interested in further detailing it i would like to know if there is a commercially available shade of purple that will come close to matching it. If not can anyone suggest a good formula.

The ACL & SAL HS has for several years sold custom ACL Royal Purple paint that is matched precisely to the official ACL color drift card. We have been out of stock but now have a new bulk supply in. We have to get it bottled and labeled but are hoping that will be done within a couple of weeks.

This and other custom colors are available from us at $3.50 per bottle plus shipping of $1.00 for one or two bottles, and .50 additional for each additional bottle above two. Order from ACL & SAL HS, Product Sales, P. O. Box 325, Valrico, FL 33595-0325. See our full product listing on the web site.

Atlas and other manufacturers have begun to use our official color for their models so you should get an exact or very close match.
