    i am looking for the actual colours for the red/blue laboratory test coaches, and according to the Fox Transfers website, it lists the following Railmatch colour, RM204 rail red.

    now after looking at the actual paint colour in the local model shop, it looks more orangey colour than red and was thinking is that right, or should i go for the other colours namely RM400 signal red, RM241 royal mail red, or RM305 bufferbeam red

    in the past ive used Tamiya XF-7 flat red to paint the n-gauge coaches in the technical centre livery for the laboratory test coaches. now im painting in OO-gauge and i want the actual proper colour for the livery on my new conversions as i have an old Hornby mk.3 test car 10, the new Hornby test car 1 exclusive to ModelZone, also i will have the upcoming one from Bachmann laboratory 14 'Wren' also exclusive to ModelZone.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.
