Soo Line Locomotives

How did the Soo Line paint their locomotives over the years? This has been the subject of much controversy, and I'm not going to attempt to state that one theory or the other is true. Hopefully this section will help modelers and those unfamiliar with Soo practices to understand the system better. For photos to illustrate these paint schemes, visit the Photos section.
