a SOO (DSS&A) Baldwin salad?
Author: valmont

Here's a Bruce Black shot of ex-DSS&A BLW DRS6-6-1500 #385 @ ? Date was Aug.1964. Known to some as DSS&A's 'salad' paint scheme, it did survive into the SOO era for a time. Think SOO should have adopted it for it's own fleet ; ^ ) ?

Rare locomotive with an interesting paint scheme.

I've never seen that scheme. Kind of attractive and reflects an era of unique branding. I'm trying to picture a GP38 or a SD70MAC painted like that.

Bears some resemblance to the scheme Western Pacific used on their FTs.  The WP had a smaller yellow stripe and darker green.

Thanks for sharing this photo.

The Duluth, South Shore & Atlantic scheme was interesting, but I find the Soo Line scheme of white with red trim and black lettering & numbers to be much more appealing.
