I know nothing about the Tarrytown, NY station, but the Penn Central 
did paint structures PC green. Even the Lehigh Valley painted some 
buildigs PC green.

 After the conversation about the green paint 
schemes between the NYC, and the PC, I just have one question.  Is 
anyone familier with the Tarrytown, NY former New York Central and 
then Penn Central station?  If so, I noticed on a recent visit, that 
LIGHT GREEN paint is showing through the brown paint which is 
chipping on parts of the wooden support brackets on the trackside of 
the station.  Does anyone know exactly what I'm speaking of?   
Anyway, this green paint resembles that of the type used on NYC, and 
PC freight equipment, the type that has recently been the subjuct of 
much converstation.  

If anyone remembers the Tarrytown, NY station on the Hudson Division, years
ago, either in the 1950s, 60s or early 70s, can you tell me exactly what shade
of green this is?  Was it the New York Central that painted this?  You can
still the green spots on the cut stone on the sides of the station, from the
paint that splashed when the wooden brackets were being painted that green!
They obviously didn't care who painted their stations by this time, and the
kind of job they did.  I know NYC used green for their stations, but was it
them that gave Tarrytown this paint job, or was it PC?
