Color of end stripes on Green Diesels (esp. Trainmasters) : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

Does anyone know the correct color of the safety strips on the ends of Southern (hood unit) Diesel's in the (1950's) green paint? I've only seen black and white photos of these, and its impossible to tell if they're green and white or black and white. Thank you.

I remember as a child seeing both. First the green diesels of various types, then black and white. They were very beautiful and majestic in appearance and in sound. Very powerful, you could almost feel the ground vibrate beneath you. I would love to see the cab of those giants. Based on my recollection, I think that they were green and white.
