"Lake" is only correct for the early moguls and the locomotives
built prior to the AT&SF taking over, D&RG 2-8-0 #32.
The D&RG then followed the lead of the Santa Fe and painted
the locomotives Olive, Gold. This lasted until the 4-4-0 #98,
after which the 4-4-0's and the new C-16's #240-291 were painted
black. Not sure what the Grant 2-8-0's were painted, probably
Also the refrigerator cars were probably painted white.
