KORAIL model 7300, 7318 on Gyeongbu line

The train is Express Mugunghwa for southward on Gyeongbu line leaded by KR 7318. Now KORAIL operates Mungunhwa for intercity train around the Korea.
Is this the standard scheme now on the GT26CW2s? I like this better than the green, yellow and white they wore back in 2003 when I was stationed in Seoul. These things sounded great. When they would notch up it would sound just like an SD40-2 (owing to it's 645 prime mover).
To Mr.VirginiaSouthern.

KORAIL model 7100, 7200, 7300, 7400 and 7500 are looks like this 7318, US engines.
EMD built model 7100 (freight) and 7500 (passenger). I guess they are based on GT26CW.
Model 7200, 7300 and 7400 are made in Korea. I guess they are some clone. :(

The colour scheme of 7318 is special. I upload the standard one. ;)
