4653 looks red and white in the photo; all the other current Army GP's are red and yellow.

Is 4653 red and white or red and yellow?

I lke it! With the expense of new locos going way up, I wouldn't be shocked to see the Paducah shop return to its glory days. Business will also pick up soon because of NRE's ownership of the shops.

Try mustard yellow

The unit is red and mustard yellow. Not bright yellow as other Army units.
