where can I find a match for Southern freight car brown?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I am currently kitbashing a Southern phosphate tank car, and I'm trying to find a match for Southern's "freight car brown". Does any manufacturer currently mix this color; or was it a generic paint? The second part of my question is there an available decal set for this car?

I believe that Floquil (Walthers) still makes a paint under the color "SR Freight Car Brown." This is the color that I use when putting together one of Westerfield's SR truss rod box car kits. It may be appropiate or even the same color for more modern cars. Hope this helps. Kenneth
