NB Southern 2318's new paint scheme

Lou McIntyre was kind enough to pass along a photo of NB Southern 2318 in its new paint scheme. He caught it on July 1 at McAdam.

Thanks for the photo, Lou!

Contrast this with a shot of NBSR 9802 and you can see the similarities in the paint scheme.

Keep in mind that even though they are both classified as GP38 engines, they come from very different origins. The 980x series come from Southern Pacific GP35s while the 231x series come from Devco GP38s. There are many differences between the two series, and these photos show that the ditch lights and bell locations are two of them.
