Royal Blue

I have a Royal Blue engine and tender as well. I have had this engine for years and it runs fine. However, it has a problem. On the top of the engine on the raised portion there is a quarter sized chip in the casting. I bought it his way because it was cheap. I have ran it on my layout as is from time to time. Now I want to fix the damage. I know how to fix the the chip but don't know where to get the proper paint.
Anybody got any ideas or recommendations? I've checked Menard's for a spray can but nothing looked satisfactory for a color match. The rest of the paint on the engine is pretty nice.

Secor hardware has a almost perfect match for the Royal Blue, in fact I think it's called Royal Blue.. Also Rustoleum has a nice Royal Blue, same name.

I use the airbrush version that Portlines sells. I've had too many problems with rattle cans - must be the operator and not the cans though.

Here is another one of my Lionel/American Flyer sets. Nice looking train. This one has can motors so it runs a little better than the open frame motors. No B unit for this one, one wasn't made. Made in 1989.

Similar story Fred,the only accessory Dad bought when we were kids was a 761 semaphore. He never did figure it out as I remember. I think they add to the overall feel of a fifties layout.

Nice looking set mopac. I don't have any of the Flyonel passenger sets. They should have made a "B" unit, I think they would have sold well.
