Does anyone know the colors of NS unit 4001 I am custom painting one and don't know the correct colors to apply. I thought the back half of the locomotive was gray but after looking at some photos it's not truly gray and I'm not sure what color it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
Gene

But if you've ever looked at automotive paints, there are way more than 50 shades of gray! :eek:hwell:

Color can be a very subjective thing. What looks spot on to one person may look way off to another. Plus the type of light the model is viewed under will have an effect. The best thing to do is pick colors that look good to YOU, and go for it! :smilie_daumenpos:

Sure, no problem.
The OP didn’t mention what scale he was working in. Roundhouse makes that unit in HO for $89.99. I assume that’s just straight DC at that price. That was from Active Power Sports.
