Here, in Springfield, MO, in 1972, a set of FIVE orange and white F's head for the yard to take a train to St Louis.

Thanks for those. But maybe red and white might be a better description. Didn't see the f's but recollection of later units was red.

"Mandarin Orange" and white, based on the paint scheme applied by EMD to its GP35/DD35 demonstrator sets.

The orange often tended to fade darker over time, on units that had been repainted from black and yellow.
