Well STeve, all I have ever seen the Roarin' Rail in was the 4 standard colors for that particular kit. Those colors would be red, lime green, yellow, and blue. I don't have any reason to think there are other colors on this kit as the other 3 from this batch of 4 only had the same 4 colors. The other 3 from this batch were the Super Taxi, Street Cleaner Camaro, and Hemi Semi. The original 4 kits are the ones that were released into like 73 or 74 and those I've seen in color variations. The kits were the Thunderbug, Screamin' Vette, Boss MUstang, and Dune Rat. Of those I've seen variations outside the 4 standard colors on 3 of them but not the Dune Rat. Seems the standard colors were the 4 mentioned but I've seen some orange and some really nasty looking green on a few of these kits. Ok, so I gave you a little more information than you asked for but I wanted to offer some reasoning as well. So just the 4 colors on the Roarin' Rail.
Wanted: Aurora Hot Rod kits & boxes, VW kits (really looking for an old built up Smug Bug or Muscle Bug), and MPC Funny Cars. Always looking for Monogram kits molded in different colors as well.
Hemi Semi...what colour(s) did it come in, and how did you know what colour you were getting?
I'm assuming from the previous discussion, that the body of the Semi was molded in red, green, yellow or blue plastic... was it just a crapshoot? or was there a way to pick the model in a specific colour?

It was pretty much a crapshoot with nearly all the TD snap kits , and some colors seem harder to get than others. In the Td funny car series I have seem most of the series in orange red yellow and green, but I have never seen the Fiend Charger in anything but orange
