650 & 651, given their low profile as cut-down slug carbodies, wears a modified form of Phase IV, but with a zig-zag in the red/yellow stripe to bring it up to the level of mother [[IAIS 601]]'s stripe on the connecting end.

Nicknamed the "Green Bean" by some fans, IAIS 303 was the only unit in prior paint to receive a partial IAIS stripe. (850, the other unit remaining in prior paint, received the full length stripe.)

!![[IAIS 850]]

850 remained in Green Bay & Western red for its entire stay at Iowa Interstate. The traditional IAIS stripe (phase II - IV) was applied for the full length of the unit, though the ends remained solid red and never received chevrons or yellow paint

!![[IAIS 516]]

This will be another special paint scheme, to be released in late January or February 2015. It's rumored to be a 30th Anniversary IAIS scheme, inspired by the Rock Island's red and yellow paint scheme but not strictly a "heritage paint job".

Changed line 24 from:
* Phase IIa had wider lettering, and the "IOWA INTERSTATE" on the long hood was positioned towards the rear. According to Cheney, this was an error caused by the paint department at Precision National when they painted 402 and 403.

Changed line 37 from:
IAIS Phase IV paint had the stripe running the entire length of the unit, but with a solid yellow front nose and a yellow chevron rear. It also replaced the white reflective sill stripe with a yellow one. The solid yellow nose included the IAIS logo. This paint scheme was introduced with the 700-series GP38-2s, and was later applied to the 150-series SD38-2s and [[IAIS 601]]. The paint on the 700s was also the first IAIS paint job that included a clear coat, so these units look much cleaner and shinier than those in earlier schemes.

IAIS Phase V paint includes solid yellow ends, with a large IAIS logo on the front and a zig-zag stripe.

[!IAIS Locomotive Paint Schemes!]

!!Phase 0

IAIS Phase 0 wasn't as much an official paint scheme as a patched version of the paint the engines came on the railroad wearing. The most common variant was the ICG white and orange, with a black "IOWA INTERSTATE" on the long hood and a black circle with the white text "IAIS" on the nose.

!!Phase I
IAIS Phase I paint included a stripe on the long hood, along with solid yellow ends. Road numbers were large yellow digits on the cab side.

!!Phase II
IAIS Phase II paint had a stripe running the entire length of the unit and had solid yellow ends.

!!Phase III
IAIS Phase III paint had the stripe running the entire length of the unit, but with yellow chevrons on both ends.

!!Phase IV
IAIS Phase IV paint had the stripe running the entire length of the unit, but with a solid yellow front nose and a yellow chevron rear. The solid yellow nose included the IAIS logo. This paint scheme was introduced with the 700-series GP38-2s, and was later applied to the 150-series SD38-2s and [[IAIS 601]].

!!Phase V
IAIS Phase V paint includes solid yellow ends, with a large IAIS logo on the front and a zig-zag stripe. The paint scheme was partially inspired by a concept drawing done by a fan on the IAIS list.

[!Oddball Paint!]

!![[IAIS 303]]

Nicknamed the "Green Bean" by some fans, IAIS 303 was the only unit in prior paint to receive a partial IAIS stripe. During part of a cab rebuilding/repainting process, a short section of stripe was applied with the road number along the cab side.

!![[IAIS 495]]

IAIS 495 is a former CSXT engine, and came wearing CSX "stealth" grey. The letters on the size were selectively augmented and blanked to form a very blocky blue IAIS.

!![[IAIS 650]]

650, given its low profile, wears a modified form of Phase IV, but with a zig-zag in the red/yellow stripe to bring it up to the level of mother [[IAIS 601]]'s stripe on the connecting end.

!![[IAIS 513]]
