If I take a drift card to a paint supplier and get it scanned for a paint match, is the information usable by other companies or is it proprietary?

I'm wondering if it would be possible to create a useful library of information from scanned drift cards.

Paul,

If you have a color scanned for a specific line/brand of paint, the code applies only to that brand, thus proprietary. I don't know if there's a cross reference between current brands, I wouldn't assume there is but some guys out there may keep track of that for some popular automotive colors.

Some of the colors on the list were scanned from drift cards and chips so yes, that is valuable info to add. If you supply data to me that was scanned from a sample, I'll note it as such.

Another update to the list for PRR passenger, freight and structures and SP structures. Minor corrections, too. Also updated all the links in this thread.

Paul -
Welcome to the Interchange. Your best source for the Mineral Springs is going to be RRMPA. If they've done interior work, they may have the info you need. I have Pullman codes for some of the interior tints but I have yet to be able to cross any of their codes to paint brands and color codes. Hopefully, the specification exists at the Pullman Library and will be found and reported someday. Of course, Pullman, PRR or later owners could've changed the interior color design at any time. Wish I could be of more help. If you do get some good color info on the original scheme, please forward to me and I'll put it in the list.

Good luck on your research.
