Just wondering if an Orange 85 color correction filter could be used in B&W for a similar effect as a yellow or red B&W filter?

Yes, it has a mild effect like any pale yellow/orange would. But it's not as strong an effect as a saturated orange b&w filter would create in daytime with blue skies.

I use the Tiffen Yellow 12. It produces very nice contrast for B&W films without being too harsh. I used it for a sunset while shooting 7231 and got great results!
