Originally Lehigh Valley #314-325, to D&H #7314-7325, later renumbered to D&H #220-231 by Guilford. All went to CP Rail, and all but #7316 and #7321 survive on the CP Rail roster today.
Unit #7312 is has been named “B.C. O'Brien” by CP Rail and has been repainted into D&H Lightning Stripes in the Ogden shops.
A Note on GP38-2 Paint Schemes:
Consensus is that every locomotive had the "potential" to be a bit different. That having been said, it seems there are 3 basic paint schemes during the dwindling years of the D&H.
On arrival 1976, all units were painted in Lightning Stripe, series #7314-7325. Paint was applied over former LV red and tended to weather, fade, or come off in sheets very quickly.
Once re-shopped, some units were painted Altschul blue with yellow lettering, white numberboards with black numbers, large yellow shield under cab window each side, yellow zebra stripes on both ends, a small shield on nose in middle of stripes, a yellow stripe on side of walkways, black handrail stanchions with yellow rail, and yellow vertical railings by steps. Undercarriage was black.
In the 1978 re-shopping, some came out with yellow noses and a large yellow shield on the nose. No stripes on either end. Balance of paint job as #2 above.
In 1977, as a one-off scheme, #7325 was seen with an all-blue body, silver trucks, no yellow safety stripe, and large yellow shield on nose. Fuel tank was blue. Balance of paint job as #3 above.
