The New Haven McGinnis scheme was also applied to FAs and PAs.
The later diesel scheme with black bodies and red cabs was applied to GP7s
(GP9s?), RS-3s, and?
The later scheme with stripes also appeared on C425, the last diesels that
New Haven received (1968).
The EP-5s got an orange paint job with stripes later.
Are there names for the later diesel schemes?
P.S. Jerry, great response.
