Remarks & Notes 
An original ARR Geep built new for the railroad in 1975 still wears it's as delivered scheme. This is presently one of only three units on the ARR still wearing this livery. Notice the shiny new plow and steps. This is at least the third configuration for this unit. It was built new with a standard pilot and a drop step. Somewhere in it's life it received a large semi-circular plow, notched steps, and an anti-climber. Now, here it is reverting to a small plow and standard front steps. While the plows are bought from outside, all the rest of the modifications are done entirely in house by the ARR's diverse and talented mechanical staff. Note: the photographer is a railroad employee and was wearing all required PPE while taking this photograph.
