Thank you for the reply. Ok, that is a first point, btw photo is not mine. 
Anyway ok, if i set -1/3 or -2/3 the color shift is sometimes ( let's say 25% 
of the times ) less noticeable.

Could you please tell me what values have you used?

Here i have tried for example -30 lum and + 15 contrast, and the result is 
still much less green and much more cyan than the real one. I am not able to 
mathematically measure it, unfortunatly, but believe me.

I have seen it too. The strange rectangular table with a shape in the front of 
the train ( over the left red light ) contains, together with the orange slice, 
a pure black and a pure white, so yes, it is too blue. 

But balancing color like i often do ( i use curves, picking the near white 
color, and i put r,g and b channels all the same value, and the same for near 
black ) still have the "green" problem that is false.

By the way, this strange color cast happens only with trains of this color ( 
99% ;) ), all other things have not this problem or at least it is not 

I have upped 2 more samples: one that has the right green ( 
 ) and one with the wrong color ( 

Thank you again.
