Special issues and books. Looking at my copy of "D-Day on the Western Pacific, a railroad's decision to dieselize," it seems the silver and orange (BTW I also liked) was used on all diesels from sometime in the 1950s up to about 1970. I think about 1970 new management was brought in and changed the colors.

The Western Pacific Railroad (reporting mark WP) was a Class I railroad in the United States. It was formed in 1903 as an attempt to break the near-monopoly the Southern Pacific Railroad had on rail service into northern California. WP's Feather River Route directly competed with SP's portion of the Overland Route for rail traffic between Salt Lake City/Ogden, Utah, and Oakland, California, for nearly 80 years.

Western Pacific University, a new public, government-funded ecumenical & coeducational. the First Legislative Council then vetted and issued a Certificate of Legal Compliance regarding the proposed Bill; in turn, the Governor General gave his clearance for the NEC to endorse the Western Pacific Bill 2013 to be tabled in Parliament

Fascinating history of how and when the Western Pacific chose its diesel locomotives, beginning with the first EMD switcher in 1939 and the first three FT freight units in 1942. The author follows the Operating Department for 40 years to see why the WP purchased and employed diesel power the way it did. You will see the final hurrah for steam during World War II, assault the Canyon with EMD, Alco, FM and GE test units, watch as changing times dictate changing combinations of power, witness the birth and death of the California Zephyr and its F-3 and FP-7 units, glimpse the RDC experiment, examine the WP's locomotive facilities and meet men like Ed Cuyler who made the decisions and ran the trains. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. With all-time rosters of WP, Tidewater Southern, and Sacramento Northern diesel locomotives, map, bibliography, and gradient profiles.
