SR buildings green

Postby Firefly16 » Sat Jan 11, 2020 2:24 pm

Does anyone know of a supplier of Southern Rly middle chrome green buildings paint other than Precision Paints, or at least a passable home decorating alternative in tester pot form?

According to The HMRS livery register, the colour was carried forward into BR days as BS381C No 221 - Brilliant Green .

This should be readily available. eg https://www.onestopaerosols.co.uk/product/?id=5257
This site https://www.e-paint.co.uk/Colour_alternatives.asp gives a Dulux equivalent colour as:

Reference: 50GY 13/306
Range: Dulux Trade
Name Woodland fern 2

This can be obtained as an acrylic tester pot from your local Dulux dealer with a mixing machine.
Hope this helps

Tony.

Thank you, 21C1 - this sounds promising and I will certainly check this out.
