Yes Jim, you draw a very broad brush here.<br>The challenge forst is to determine date lines, models discussed and use the real colour terms, and not generic &#39;modern&#39; jargon.<br><br>There has been countless clarifications on this very group of D&amp;RGW by learned historians and real time railroad men. Search for them and you will find the answers. Unfortunately most will have broken photo links as places like DPL have wholesale tossed away their old catalog and URL links.<br><br>The assertion that Don Stracks&#39; utahrails can be criticised or needs further effort isn&#39;t warranted. It is and has been a masterpiece of historical value for his own and everyones needs for a long time now.<br><br>Then you appear to assume models of locomotives/ power are all painted the same is in error. Many types were delivered over 2-3 year (at most) periods and the D&amp;RGW seems to have been very adaptive and versatile, quickly modifying specs when conditions suggested they should. <br><br>The RGM&amp;HS web site, sadly missing in action, had many tables that included membership added articles and items. Bob Webber was to be congratulated for what he developed, but sadly it did not keep being updated as knowledge was improved or cnfirmed. <br>Luckily I captured and converted a lot of this data for my own use to spreadsheet formats.<br><br>Thus I can confirm for you that the earliest diesels purchased from 1941 to 1946 were black with &#39;Imitation Gold Duco (yellow)&#39; paint schemes. The &#39;yellow&#39; is a non-specific reference generalism.<br><br>Earliest GPs and SDs straddled this and next variation, for instance came along in 2 different shades- being Orange Duco (Aspen Gold) in 1949 through new or repainting, I&#39;m not certain of which. There is colour proof of this also. (ref Jim Eagers advice).<br class="yui-cursor"><div class="ygroups-quoted"><br>#100 in 1949 was still wearing it&#39;s original paint scheme but had been sub-lettered with #7000 with 3-4 inch numerals on the lower cab front.

I know that the 7000 May have been delivered in yellow but at the time or shortly after it was renumbered to 100 the color changed. Same as the geeps and sd 7 &amp; 9s. They were the same yellow when delivered Its time someone puts an actual color samples on their website Utah rails! Yellow can mean a hundred shades and orange wasn&#39;t used until much later and only on freight cars. 3-4 bay hoppers for an example. No f units ever had orange until maybe the end. Grande gold is a long way from orange! I defy anyone to show me geeps, switchers, f units most sds and with orange like the crayon color orange! Grande gold and slight variations are Everywhere not yellow and not orange.<br>

Show me!!!!!!<br>
