Rutland Station Colors
Posted by cowman on Sunday, January 20, 2019 6:58 PM

Seems paint colors has been a popular topic lately, so I'll add my question to.  Though I'm not to close to being ready to paint I will be heading to the Amherst Show, so may find the colors I need there.

Am looking for the colors used along the Rutland to Bennington line.  It's been over 60 years since I looked at the old station and wasn't color matching then.  I doubt it is still in it's original rr colors.  

Thanks for the help,

Richard

Richard, I know nothing about the Rutland, but I do really like old stations, so I did a quick look around and found this:

Nice station Mike, but a far cry from the simple ones along this line.  I have seen a similar one on the other side of the state, I think.

Will check with them at the show j.c.  The time I checked with one of the members, he was unsure.  I think he was a bit too young.

Thank you both,

Richard

The one I posted was at Bennington.  While searching, I did see lots of smaller stations.  The colors were close to this, but much more faded and neglected.

Good luck at the show.

Mike,

Thanks for the update.  I lived in Bennington for a few years in the 50's, but not close to the station.  My railfanning spot was along Rt 7 and about all I saw was rails and ties.  The station at Manchester, the one I'm most familiar with, was a wooden structure, as was the small one in N. Dorset..

Thanks again,

Richard

j.c.,

That's more like what I remember, now to find what the colors are called or at least a close color match.

Thank you,

Richard
