All ACL Es and Fs that I have seen photos of wearing 6" ATLANTIC COAST LINE letters seem to have an extended gothic style lettering. Decals are available for these diesels, however, that contain a shorter, more compact 6" gothic ATLANTIC COAST LINE. What E or F units wore this shorter letterboard?

The only diesel units that I know of that wore the compact short lettering were #1900 and 1901. The 1900 was an Alco HH-660 and the 1901 was an EMC SW1. Both units were built by their respective builders in 1939 and received a solid purple body with aluminum lettering (no aluminum body stripe as in later switchers). Both of these units are pictured in Warren Callaway's "ACL - The Diesel Years" book, p.17.
