I am certainly interested in pursuing a modern paint formula for the original Baldwin green. Not sure if the powder code vendors can work with paint codes, or simply match by eye to an existing sample. Apparently it is possible to submit a Benjamin Moore or Sherman Williams metal exterior paint sample to obtain a Baldwin green powder coating formula. That way it could be available for use either way.
Ian Wallis just sent out a holiday card with what looks like another possible example of what looks like your paint sample, used on a new build on the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway in North Devon, UK. The photo was taken by Ian’s friend John Pigott.
