Did any of the SCL GP40-2's in the series 1636 - 1656 receive the Family Lines paint scheme. If so which ones?

I don't know of any of these that were repainted. As you know, while South Louisville repaints were very common, WAYX repaints were comparatively rare, except of course for the GP16's. I think only 2 SCL GP40's were repainted, and that was due to repairs after their involvement in the 7 unit runaway incident from Hulsey to Tilford. RN#'s escape me for now, but one became SBD 6673. Incidentally, I think the 1636 was on the bottom of that consist.
