> Earliest GPs and SDs straddled this and next variation, for instance came=
along in 2 different shades- being Orange Duco (Aspen Gold) in 1949 throug=
h new or repainting, I'm not certain of which. There is colour proof of thi=
s also. (ref Jim Eagers advice).

Which is why I posted a photo in the list Photos section showing 4 GP9s, tw=
o from the 1955 order with Duco Imitation Gold stripes (Imitation Gold - Du=
co - 246-54015, aka yellow), and two from the 1956 order with Duco Orange s=
tripes (Orange - Duco - 254-6479 - Deck 620, EMD 8173994, aka Grande Gold) =
***in the same photo***, so there can be no mistake that the two colors wer=
e different. The photo name is =E2=80=9CGP9s=E2=80=9D in the "Jim Eager Pho=
tos=E2=80=9D album.
