This has been covered before--many times.
The GP7s, SD7s and first order of GP9s came with yellow imitation
gold striping and lettering, the SD9s and second order of GP9s came
with Duco Orange aka Aspen Gold striping and lettering. In my album
in the List Photo Albums is a photo showing the difference in a
single 4-unit set of GP9s.
