#1766 is numbered as 1602. Close examination of the paint will show the previous number showing through. The original 1602 is sitting in South Milford as a parts engine.  It still wears Hillsdale County paint, as does no. 1770. (1770 repainted in summer 2002)
The Hillsdale County converted # 1770 to a low nose unit in the late 80’s. It is scheduled to be painted in the Nickel Plate inspired colors in 2002. It was originally Great Northern #697.
#'s 2185 and 2230 were acquired in 2001. Both are scheduled do be painted in 2002.

Update sources: Martin Baumann and Robert Oom

NOTE:  The 3003, 3009, 3074, 3072 have been completely repainted in the "new" 
paint scheme with large numbers on the side of the hood like BN and the 
LS&I herald under the cab window.  The paint scheme is nearly indentical to 
the BN since the new shade of green appears to match the BN color whereas 
in the old "touch-up" scheme the green didn't match very well. (Robert Oom)
