Before I made the switch to LS I was an HO Conrail modeler and spent most of my time around Enola and Rutherford. The GEs were always my favorites and I still consider myself a CR fan.
I used Floquil CR blue on all of my models. I tried Scalecoat on one but it just did not look right. In outdoor natural light I think the real blue always looked a bit more pale than either the Floquil or the Scalecoat. I usully lightened it a bit with some white. In the 80's the accumulation of grunge provided lots of variation in hue. Top of my list was the 'rust' colored stuff that accumulated on many of the horizontal surfaces of the locomotives.
