BNSF Warbonnet Colour Scheme
I am trying to find the correct colours for Dash-9 that a friend is building. Can anyone help with the correct colour codes for the warbonnet scheme?

Thanks Martyn

Hi Martyn:

I don't have any codes, but the colours are the standard Santa Fe red and silver. A model shop should have the Floquil or similiar, paints as a sample for a computor match by your paint supplier.

I, personally, think the Company should have used the Warbonnet scheme as our "new" livery, except that the red should have been replaced by the BN's Cascade Green. Instead, in an effort at including colours from the constituent Companies, we ended up with that silly Orange paint job with the new "flying wedgie" logo.

Best,

Thanks Mike
The builder has a no green policy for this one, mainly becasue our last loco was Brunswick Green. He tasked me with something brighter for this loco.
