    HI from a newby.
    Just got a bodykit for an SD60,and I am going to paint it in OAKWAY colours.
    Can anyone tell me the correct colours to purchase, I know it's blue/white , but is there a specific name for those two colours that EMD used.
    And the name of any paint supplier,,I am in England (taxed to death:rolleyes: ) so am unable to order any paint other than water based acrylics.

    The blue and white Oakway paint scheme is exactly the same blue and white paint used on EMD's GP59, GP60, and SD60 demonstrators. I remember Model Railroader magazine had Paint Shop articles on the EMD demo units like 15 years ago, so my memory is a bit fuzzy, but I kind of remember Conrail Blue and Reefer White.

    Hope this helps.

    I think Conrail blue would be correct for a recently painted unit. Great Northern sky blue might be better for a unit that has been in service and had the paint start to fade.
