Rail Express Systems Livery Colour
« on: March 09, 2019, 10:59:52 AM »
Hello all,

Does anyone know of a paint colour that's readily available that reasonably matches the Rail Express Systems red? Just to add, I can't use Humbrol or Railmatch etc as I'm painting an area approx 80cm x 60cm.

Cheers!

Jimmy

Thanks very much!

Those links were most useful, particularly the paint guide one. I think I have found one which may do the job.

I'm looking to paint a mount board for a double arrow which came off a RES Class 47, I thought it might look quite nice with a proper background.





Cheers,

Jimmy

If you want to have your own tin mixed, then the paint code for RES red is BS381C / 537 Signal Red. The grey is RAL 7026 Granite Grey.

Hope this helps.

You're very welcome. I have access to most if not all Pantone / RAL codes for railway liverys. 

Please post a photo of the finished article if you can, I'd love to see it. Big RES fan here!
