Remarks & Notes 
Yes, It's Supposed to Be Green

A lonely pair of 70DACUs in helper service drift past Pennsylvania Railroad EFS-17M (aka EMD GP9) #7048, which replaced K4s #1361 as a display at Horseshoe Curve.

#7048 is fresh from its most recent cosmetic restoration, which included correctly painting the locomotive in its as-delivered Dark Green Locomotive Enamel, and lettering from the correct PRR diagrams. The low autumn morning sun shows the color is, in fact, green! The museum accomplished this for less than $5,000 and over 120 hours of volunteer labor. To support the museum's efforts, including the rebuilding of K4s #1361 to operation and other projects (a PC N-10 Cabin is next), visit www.railroadcity.org
