Question about 611's paint during the excursion era.

I was looking through the new Classic Trains special issue about 4-8-4's and was comparing the photo by Jim Wrinn of 611 on pages 84 and 85, which was taken in 1994 to photos of 611 taken in the early to mid 80's and it seemed to me that the shade of Tuscan Red changed during the 12 years she operated. Did NS in fact change paints or does the appearance of the Tuscan stripe change due to lighting conditions? Thanks in advance for any assistance.
