Default Discontinued Floquil paint colors

I'm looking for the following discontinued Floquil paint colors. These are the Railroad colors NOT the "Polly S" version.

R-160-Rock Island Maroon
DH-10 D&H Caboose Red
R-156 Erie Lack. Maroon

If anyone has any of these in their stash and wants to sell, please PM me. (I'll even buy partial bottles)

Thanks!!!

How long ago were they discontinued?
My LHS has stocked Floquil stuff for years - maybe they might have a color you need.

I can check the LHS as well if they are recently discontinued.

I'm not sure when they were discontinued but the color chart I have is from 1979-1980. My guess is that they were around for a while after that.

I know they still have those colors in the Polly S brand but they're not quite the same.

Thanks Cat, I really appreciate any help you can give me!

Sorry, Otist - they have the Erie and Rock Islands, but they're Pollyscale

Same thing here, I went to a LHS that specializes in model railroading. They had two of the three but they were the Polly Scale Acrylics.

If nothing turns up there are some Model Railroading shows coming up in the Fall, you never know what you might find there.

Jon,

If you have a good enough paint swatch, go to Ray's Paints over on Braddock in Culver City. He'll match it for you, mix up any amount you want, and can even put it in a spray can.

It's pricey (probably $40+ for a LARGE can of spraypaint), but it's good quality paint and he can match any color you want.

Gene
