The color you are trying to describe sounds like Green Zinc Chromate.
This was also used in locomotive cabs, building interiers, etc. To
see a sample of it go to the hobby shop and look at Testors Model
Master line. They make this color.

When we restored our ex-CR/PC NE-6 at Clinton, MI, scraping down under the
Conrail grey interior, we found a color of what I would best call
"institutional green" underneath. This is the type of green paint you might
find on the walls of a hospital, school, etc. I don't think I have the
color chip any more, but we found a good match at the local Do-It Center.
