  1. You got them both together? Nice!

    That was an experimental scheme on 5001 – only a small number of units had the 5″ stripes and a small multimark. If you could see the rear of the unit, the 5″ black and white stripes would only go as high on the long hood end as that multimark – above that would be plain Action Red.

    CP retained the large multimark for a while when they switched to the 8″ stripes (as seen on 5000), and when they did start using a small multimark again, the 8″ black-and-white stripes still extended the full height of the end of the long hood.
