Alco Demonstrator Gray.
Author: NYSWSD70M

Does anyone know a good match for the gray that Alco used for the C430 and C636 Demonstrators? I believe that GVT also used this shade of gray.

Thanks.

At first I thought D&H gray might be close, but it's much lighter. The Alco demo gray is pretty dark ... Seaboard System or ICG gray might be close? I think SP gray is too dark. Also, the D-L modern gray looks lighter to my eye than the demo gray.

Sort of a medium grey.  SP is indeed way too dark   D&H grey mihgt be close given their proximity and that D&H did buy ALCos.

This shouldn't take too long. There's only about a million shades of gray out there.
