Re: PC: Interoir Caboose/Cabin Car interior?

that's took dark for the color I thought this is...   look at Polly S
military colors for a mint green.   I'm thinking this looks more like the
light green used on the Erie 2-tone green paint scheme.   

I'd think a caboose interior would be light because you want them to be
bright inside.
