Bravo to Lionel for getting real paint samples to approve prior to production. HOWEVER, that is only half of the battle. The person reviewing the samples needs to know what the colors should be. To be properly reviewed, the inspector should be an expert in the specific railroad. I can tell whether PRR Freight Car Color or Dark Green Locomotive Enamel colors are reasonably correct or way off (such as the recent pumpkin orange freight cars and Army green locomotives). However I don't know Mopac blue from B&O blue. Dear Lionel, to do it right PLEASE involve people who know what they're looking at.
