I've got shots of the 5561 with the F-3 style d/b taken 11-13-65 and
earlier, plus a shot of it with the 36" d/b fan taken 2-12-67. All are
in the single stripe scheme. Hope this helps.

SUBJECT: Re: [DRGW] Re: F unit musings

That's very interesting, Steven! This means that the units were not
*completely* upgraded to normal F7 status in the early '50s. Any chance
you can share a photo with us?

Incidentally, the Diesel Era article was by Ed Fulcomer and Paul
Withers.

There seems to be a growing list of oddball F units to challenge the
modeler...

And speaking of which, this DPL Photo [1] seems to have two of them on
the same train. Zoom in and tell me if that looks like 5531 running
fourth in the consist.

I have some pictures of 5561 and 5564 in single stripe paint with the F3
style dynamic brake. I do not have a picture of 5561 with the 36" axial
dynamic brake fan, but I do have a 1967 picture of 5564 with it. The
B-units are much harder to find pictures that can be identified.
