PC's shade of green being slightly darker. (Too close to BN's Green, which
causes many a doubletake for me living out here in BN land...)

Despatch and Beech Grove probably used quite a bit of NYC Jade Green on PC
repaints because it was there.  This only adds to the differences in colors.

A good example of this is in the Box Car section of the PC color guide.
One photo shows a complete PC repaint next to a *very* clean NYC high cube.
They are noth NYC Jade Green.
