Why dont you contact them, give them the sample you have or the rference and they would be in better place to look against their master color list

Just trying to help out a but here... but Googling Carload Express Burgundy to see what this paint scheme resembles, makes me lean towards Wisconsin Central Maroon. Tru Color sells a WC maroon paint, TCP-117.

Third pic of the prototype is from Carload Express's Facebook page...

Mr. MRL ~ your mileage may vary...

If you can find a Dupont Imron Paint color chart, that is where the colors originated.
Dupont Imron Maroon: Imron 143UH
Dupont Imron Chrome Yellow:  Imron 6561U
Dupont Imron Black:  Imron 99U
The yellow is sprayed, then masked, then oversprayed with maroon and the masks removed.

Hopefully we'll get to see your finished model(s).
