Remarks & Notes 
Subsequent to the July 1, 1967 merger between SAL and ACL, repainting of locomotives for both roads began almost immediately. Initially, Seaboard locomotives received what became known as the "split-image" scheme prior to receiving the black and yellow colors at a later date. Here we see former Seaboard E7A 3017 now re-lettered and re-numbered SCL 544 working passenger, mail, and express train No. 3 at Raleigh, NC. In the distance on the left, a GP7 is working the 2:45pm yard job, and on the right is the rear of No. 10, the Palmland, awaiting it's departure. SCL 544 was one of several E units which never received an SCL herald on the nose while in this paint scheme and was re-painted SCL black and yellow within 12 months.
