The story of Conrail Blue

Unread postby GP30M4216 » Thu Dec 29, 2016 8:11 pm

Any fans of the Conrail of yore know there's no other shade quite like the bright and vibrant Conrail Blue. But there were some subtle changes to the hue of the color and also minor progressions and variations in the Conrail paint scheme over its 23 year history. I found this article really interesting!
