Correct Orange for Canadian National GP40-2LW?
Author: tehachapi-dave

Working on a G Scale "Comfort Cab" GP40-2 painted in the CN Zebra stripe scheme.  The white and black are straightforward, but wondering what orange to use on this project.  I mainly use Scalecoat II paints from Minuteman Scale Models, but they have around 5 different CN orange options on the website and no preview on what the color will look like.  What option would be the best match for CN orange when these units were delivered?

Thanks

 would be the 2126 CN Orange-Red one, The Morency one is for the older wood caboose and MOW equipment.

Also, the "white" is actually light gray. CN Grey No. 17 and CN Red/Orange No. 11 would be the colors.
