    Default paint color difference

    I was wondering what the difference between Santa Fe yellow and BNSF yellow. I need to paint some handrails. With no local hobby store I have the BNSF yellow. These handrails are on a early Kato engine. The older ones come with black handrails and I can find no pictures of a Santa Fe engine painted blue and yellow with black handrails

    I just got my first bottles of True Color paint. This is the nicest paint I have used in a long time. so It is worth ordering it online.

    Yes.
    I've found it on eBay, Arizona Hobbies and a buddy just ordered some tonight from Side Track Hobbies in Albert Lea, MN. I think?
    I'm sure there are other places to find it at as well.

    They have a nice color chart online; http://trucolorpaint.com/color-charts/
    Plus a find a retail store link: http://trucolorpaint.com/find-a-retail-store/

    True Color paint is really nice paint. Keep a bottle of nail polish remover handy. Only thing that will touch that paint to clean off brushes, etc. I try my best to paint with disposables anytime I use True-Color. If you are spraying it, making sure to thin it well.

    Give you an idea of idea color match. I did this building with True Color BSNF Orange and Green.
