Srr diesel scheme was originally green and white. It stayed this way until delivery of the SD-24's which were delivered in the new tuxedo scheme. During the 1960's, all locomotives were re-painted into the tux as they went through major overhauls. Of course not all locos could be repainted all at once so this process took several years. So you could still see Srr locos in green up to at least 1964-65...

I saw the photos. It's nice they this was done to the Geep as well as E units #6900 and 6901, which I think are in museums.
Despite its shortcomings, Southern was a railroad with class!

FYI: Southern FP7 #6133 and E8 # 6900 are at the NC Transportation Museum at Spencer. Both in green / im. aluminum. There's also a Southern GP30 in black / im. aluminum, and an ACL E3, #501, in purple / silver.
E8 #6901 (green / im. alum) is at the Southeastern Railway Museum at Duluth, GA.
Bunch of other steam / diesel (some operating) at both museums.
Did Southern have any of their SD24's in the green paint scheme, or were they all black?
