Thanks ... it seems to work quite well. I have to tweak it as you suggest. I will see if I can pass off photographs made on Vericolor film as digital ones ... hmmmm. I mean to create forgeries!!! What problems will I run into????

Firstly, I assume that when you "Invert" the negative image in PS to
get a positive image, you will end up with a green-blue cast
If that's the case then my suggestion is to make a "Compensating
Mask" - Create a layer above the image and fill it with an orange
color and set the blending mode to "COLOR" then, if it's way off,
use Hue and Saturation to adjust it till its really close
and finally use Color balance to get it right. Finer
adjustment can be made by using opacity.
Once you have the color that works. use the eyedropper to get the
RGB values and save the color as a swatch.
When you make the action you simply create a layer, fill it with
that color, set the blending mode to color and adjust the opacity of
the layer in needed. You can then save it as a PSD file and still
have the facility to make fine adjustments later.
