    Looking on the Norfolk and Western Historical Society website, I found several ballast hoppers and sand hoppers in green paint. The color appears to closely match the green that Union Pacific uses for their MOW equipment. It looks to be a shade darker than Penn Central gondola green.

    I can't say I know a name for it, looks a bit like a darker/bluer NYC Jade green/PC green. I'd say the UP Kenefick green was too pale.
