Newly repainted lady returns  Contributor's Pick!       
Former Fordice & Princeton GP28 that had been on the M&B property for some time recently was sent east to one of the G&W shops in Georgia for some much need care, in addition to any mechanical care it recieved it also got a new paint job into the G&W colors with M&B markings. It is marked on the lower corner of the cab as a GP28-1. Earlier posted pictures of it right after it was painted show it with a black cab roof, at some point since I guess the Southern heat mandated it be changed to white. Sorry to see the classy F&P paint scheme gone.
