Company: Tru-Color Paint LLC
When I heard that Floquil railroad paints were being discontinued, I rushed out and bought several bottles of my favorites, Grimy Black and Reefer White. But knowing that these two or three bottles wouldn’t last forever, I asked the proprietor at my LHS (The Hobby Depot) if there was any replacement on the horizon. Dick replied that there was already a line of railroad paints which had been out for several years, and that he had just received a stock. Sometimes it’s good to go to a shop which carries supplies for other hobbies, like model railroading. I bought TCP005, gloss white, TCP009, grimy black, TCP800, flat white and TCP828 flat imitation aluminum.
These are lacquer based paints, not enamels or acrylics. The list of ingredients is as follows: acetone, ethanol, MEK, toluene, propyl alcohol or butyl alcohol acetic ester. The label warns that it’s flammable, and harmful or fatal if swallowed. There’s also the usual precaution to use it in a well-ventilated area.
