Fred & All - I uploaded Fred's 1897 Murphy Varnish, Coach and Railway Varnishes and Colors book for easy access so you don't have to mess with DropBox. It's an interesting artifact. Here's the link:

If anyone wants a high resolution copy, let me know and I can upload that, too but be forewarned it's 24MB.

Thanks for posting your file, Eric. The Dropbox has been a real pain.

Uploaded a large update:

Added a Pullman Co. section for company maintained cars, 1957 to 1962, interior and exterior finishes. I expect this section may be greatly increased. Right now, the color numbers are all Pullman's. When we can cross them to the appropriate paint manufacturers, that info will be added.

Added some P-S freight cars.

Looking into adding Budd material.

Thanks goes to Bob Webber at the Pullman Library for his continuing and valuable assistance.

Enjoy.

I would suggest that you include a "Last updated <Date>" in your pdf.
