In 1949 the Milwaukee Road tested a GE electric locomotive for three
months on their Coast and Rocky Mountain divisions. This demonstrator was
numbered GE750 and was painted olive green with a white stripe. I have
several photos of this locomotive but they are in black and white. The
Milwaukee Road purchased 12 of these electrics the following year and
nicknamed them Little Joes.
I have an HO brass model of GE750 and want to paint it in the GE
demostrator colors. Has anyone ever seen a color photo of this or any
other locomotive in GE's "olive green" paint, and does anyone know an
existing paint that duplicates or approximates this color?
