IHB's new paint scheme(s)
« on: September 11, 2019, 10:43:51 PM »
Many of IHB's SW1500 units are being rebuilt.  They now have Flexicoil trucks and what appears to an AC unit for the cab.  But the most striking feature is the new paint scheme that closely resembles the very first scheme back in 1948.  They are now painted in Brunswick Green (which looks black in some contexts) with orange lightning stripe and with the original painted logo underneath the cab window (instead of a smaller decal).

One of the GP40-2 units has also been repainted but in a more recent scheme with what appears to be an outright black color.
