Black Locomotive Paint Scheme : LUSENET : Central of Georgia Railway Historical Soc : One Thread

Are records available of which locomotives were repainted in the solid black scheme in the early 1960's?

I have photos of E7s #803 and #804 in solid black with the "Hitler- mustache" white wings on the nose. These were photographed in 1964. I also have a photo of F3 #907 in solid black without the wings. All of these black units appear to have gold lettering and numbers. We assume that they were experimental paint schemes that were eventually abandoned in lieu of Southern's own tuxedo scheme.
