KCS paint schemes.
During what time period did KCS use it's red paint scheme? When did KCS start using the white with red lettering scheme? How late did KCS GP30's wear the red scheme? Thanks.

RE: KCS paint schemes.
I spotted red F-7's and GP-30's as late as the fall of 1976. KCS's first SD-40's came to the property in white. My earliest recollection of the white scheme was 1972... I'm sure it was around for some time before that. Here's red GP-30 #4111 taken at Heavener, Okla. in Aug 76'.
