Lettering would be white. This is a variation of the so-called "Claytor" scheme. You should be able to scale the height from the photo and the known height of the long hood. Bur good luck on finding suitable decqls! Maybe the hopper car set?

In doing some research for my SD39 since I acquired the parts to build one.  I ran across this photo:

Photo is credited to Alan Gaines taken in New Haven, IN with no date.  My question is about the road name on the long hood, can anyone provide info on this paint scheme.  This might be the unit I mode if I can find out the height of the lettering and color.

Thanks in advance,
James Wall
