I have been using Phoenix SR Midde Chrome Green and SR Buildings Cream on some buildings, but I'm not sure if that is right. Also your lamp posts, you say you used the Peco ones - did you mean Ratio? I looked for a long time at SR Concrete Lamp Posts, and the Ratio one's were the only accurate ones I could find. I have now powered these and they really look good - still to be fitted to the platform. Your layout is inspiring me to get a move on with mine. Many thanks - Barry
Thanks for your comments, now some answers to your questions. When I was getting my station together in advance of construction Initally I purchased a Peco Manyways country station kit LK-12, Peco Modelscene 5004 Lamps and Peco LK-25 platform seats. These all feature a dark green colour as do the station name totems I purchased later from Tracksidesigns. The paint I found that matched this green is Railmatch acrylic paint 2314 ‘Southern Stock Green’. Which is BS381C 226 Middle Brunswick Green which searching on Google tells me is the same as Middle Chrome Green. I have used this colour along with Railmatch 2312 cream to good effect. So that’s my ramble regarding Shawhurst’s station colour.
You are correct regarding the concrete lamp posts, these are Ratio lamps 454.
Hope this is of help and look forward to seeing your layout’s progress
