Pennsy F7

Through years of collecting various road named motive power, we have begun to lean towards the pennsy line.  As a result, we have begun stripping and repainting some of our engines.

In my zeal to get our layout to have a more pennsy look, I DCC'ed, stripped and repainted our legacy Minitrix F7A and F7B to tuscan red.  Later research indicates that these engines should probably be brunswick green instead.

My question to all is this:  Has anyone seen any actuate pictures (not model pictures) of a pennsy F7A and or B that is tuscan red?

I searched the Internet to no avail.  The color pictures that I have found all indicate they should be pennsy green.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

That's correct, all Pennsy F units, with the exception of a few FP7's, were DGLE with a single stripe.

Believe it or not, there was actually one Baldwin VO-1000, and one EMD SW? painted in tuscan red, but NO F7's.

OTOH, all passenger Diesels were originally DGLE, including E7's and E8's.
