Paint info please

I am in the process of building a 7 1/4 gauge railway around our garden but I need to sauce some paint, red for wood i.e discs on level crossing gates and red for metal i.e sand buckets. Do I need gloss or satin? And what colour names and brands do you guys recommend?

Kind Regards

Mal

Gloss is likely to be more durable as rain will run off more easily. Preparation is the key (excuse the pun). Try yacht quality paint from a ship's chandler or any good qaulity paint.
