What are the appropriate colors for the interior of an Amtrak Heritage Coach in Ph 3 livery circa the late 1980s/early 1990s?
I’ve found some interior pictures, but none of these have any indication of their time period.
I’ve read that early interiors had light blue seats, paisley white covers over the top of the seat back, and light grey or beige walls. Also red that Amtrak changed to brown seats and earth tones, etc… in the late 70s/early 80s.
The recent Lionel Amtrak Phase 3 heritage passenger cars don’t have finished interiors. Nice thing is that it is SUPER EASY to remove the interior to paint to one’s liking.
So far I’ve sprayed the interior a matte, dark gray & clear coated the whole interior. Have done some samples of blue paints for the seats & beige sides just to see how it’s look. I did so assuming that it was likely Amtrak would’ve revamped the interiors to match their Amfleets- but it was just a guess. See pics below:
there’s a couple shades of blue below- would any of those have been the seat colors?
Any and all help/advice is very, very greatly appreciated!!
