A classic paint scheme all right.

The Centuries ended D&H's relationship with ALCO. Their performance was disappointing in that they had a nasty habit of picking facing point switches, cracking switch frogs in both directions and being rough riding for the crews. D&H wasn't alone, as Atlantic Coast Line, Lehigh Valley, Louisville & Nashville, Monon, Pennsylvania and Southern Pacific also found the C628s ate their less than optimum track for breakfast, lunch and dinner, too. But, when clean they looked great. I am conflicted between D&H and LV as to whose looked better. LV's looked better dirty than D&H's-IMVHO.

Of course, a variety of second-hand Alcos eventually found their way onto D&H rails (all four-axle, except for the PA-1's).
