My information shows that some GP-40's were painted with the orange C and
one ex hew haven RS3.
The red P was put on sporadically on repaints sometime in
1969.....approximately 100 units.......I have a listing on which unirs were
repainted in this manner.
As far as freight cars this seems to have been done spradically as
well.....don't have a listing of cars that were repainted in this manner.
If you need info on a particular unit I would be glad to help
