I know that when PC painted the unit numbers under the cabs of it's
engines, they were painted in white. What I am seeking, is an exception.
The PC did harbor a number (I believe 9) FM H-24-66 "Trainmasters" that were
originally PRR. I know the last one lasted until 1970 before being scrapped
and none were ever painted into PC colors. However, the units were
renumbered by PC to 6700-6708. 6700 also got re-numbered a second time to
6799 to make room for newly arriving U-23C's. Here's what I want to know:
Did PC paint the numbers under the cabs of these units in white or "dulux"
gold? All I have ever seen is black-and-white photographs, making it
impossible to tell. Hopefully, someone who was there (59th Street, Chicago
circa 1968-1970) can tell me which is which. At least, I would like to know
if anyone ever seen a color picture of one. I know this is a long shot, but
any help would be appreciated...
