Default WSL red

Building a set of 4 WSL logging flats obtained from Hartford Products years ago. Color foe these flats should be WSL red. Can anyone advise a close color or a mix formula ??

Take it to Home Depot or Lowes and have their paint dept analyse the color for a match. Color is color whether it's a logging flat or your living room paint color.

If running outside I would use automobile paint. Has UV protection in it. Of course there is always the spray UV clear coat paint.

Call the railroad and ask them what UV protection they used.

Oh, don't think they used any.
