I don't have any information, but if you don't get the answer here, there is a BNlist on also.

Subject: [CBQ] BN/CB&Q renumbering/patched units
Apology in advance if this is not the right forum, but I thought I'd ask here first for potential direction. Long, please bear with me.

In regard to the BN merger, we have all seen examples of the "rainbow" consists with patched units. My questions concern locomotive renumbering. I would assume that, at initial merger, there likely were UNPATCHED mixed consists running together, and slowly, there were units changed over, then, the addition of freshly repainted and/or new BN units coming into the roster. I'd think there'd be opportunity for all types to be mixed at some time, but most photos seem to have only patched units.

WAS THERE a plan that BN followed to renumber units? Was it recorded anywhere? Or was it random based on units being serviced/right place, right time? If you were modeling, say, "July 1970", how could you be accurate in terms of unit numbers?

Hoping someone can shed some light here. Honestly, I like ALL the pre-BN roads, but I'm not "fond" of patched units...but if I were to "cross over" into early BN, how would the numbers be handled (despite territorial differences of rosters, as well). Seems like a complex matrix. Thanks! 

PS - I'm fairly certain a 1970 BN ANNUAL would be helpful here. I do have a 1971....
