I have been in many a caboose delivering waybills or deadheading to 
work some train order operators job somewhere and they where not 
always a lite color, they mostly where dirty, smelled of fuel oil, 
the wind blew through the windows making them cold once you got away 
from the caboose stove. Most cabooses where painted gray or green 
inside. When it comes to railroad operations I do not miss them at 
work. It is nice to be able to build a train and just drive up and 
hang a FRED.

 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.
