BN 7149 ... remember it's history? Like this paint scheme?
Author: valmont

Did only 2 get this scheme? ...  and a totally random question: Would you have voted for this scheme if it was one considered at the time BN was created?

Yes, only the two Natural Gas powered units got this scheme. It was created for the test program.

I like it, and the white nose would be better seen at grade crossings.

I'm pretty sure that's my shot.
As a side note, the other one, the 7890 was done with very large numbers, before leaving CEECO in Tacoma. Then it was redone with smaller font prior to delivery. First
shot by me at CEECO, second I think by Jim Shepard.

I thought it was a big improvement over standard BN green.
