New paint for an old classic
Title:  New paint for an old classic
Description:  One of Southern's hi hood GP 30s is in the yard at Manassas, part of the consist for the Strasburg Turn. NS did not repaint a lot of the older power that was likely to be retired, so it was something of a surprise to find this. I never saw another NS painted GP 30, either SOU or NW.
