I enjoy this forum so much, I get to use brain cells I haven't used in years!
When I saw your question about other counterstains for Iron Stain I kept 
thinking quick dip in Eosin (from you H&E) because I thought I remember having 
to do that in the 90's when we ran our of NFR. Histologist can be so 
resourceful with the right support. If I remember correctly light Eosin can 
also be used as a counterstain for GMS,  some have used a very pale Hematoxylin 
but I personally don't care for it because it wasn't enough contrst for me. 
Tony, thanks for speaking up, it's nice to know I haven't forgot eveything with 
all the automation.

Try your eosin stain used in your H&E or 1% Neutral red in 2% acetic acid
