Thanks, George -

I wonder if that was the same can, with its remaining contents long since dried out and hard, that Jeff Ellingson found nearly forty years later and had a sample from it analyzed spectrographically when he had the green urethane-type paint made up that he applied to the D&S passenger equipment and to C&TS #489 in 2010?
