Need paint recommendation for REA Baggage Cart

I've got a couple of Railway Express baggage cart kits coming and I'd like to get the color as accurate as possible. I would guess the prototype varied a bit from age and location and other factors.

Any suggestions on color and paint brand? Locally, about the only place with paint available is Hobbytown and they are pretty much limited to the various Testor's brands.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Deane

Thanks Joe. I can get that brand locally, but rarely think of it as I have an allergy to acetone. I can use a respirator to get by. The fact they have a specified color puts them high on the list. I've used enough Tru-color to know it air brushes very nicely.

I was just looking through their color line-up on their web site. Man, that has become one huge list of railroad colors. Nobody else even gets close.
