I guess it depends on what you call "full warbonnet." If you look through my MP 17 and MP 18 threads in the Western US forum, you will see lots of red & sliver units.how many original wide cab warbonnets in Red and Silver are left? I saw 614 in near full warbonnet (Santa Fe large on sides, BNSF on the nose and under the windows) in Cumberland, Maryland in early November, 2014. ?
Modeler's license. As far as I know, the first true freight units to be painted in the red & silver war bonnet scheme were the wide cab GP60 and GP60B units of the late 80's-early 90's.Little off topic, but somewhat related... I remember when I was a kid, I had an HO Scale ATSF Red and Silver GP9 (or something like a GP9). Did that ever exist or was that paint scheme only in the model railroad world?
