Spokane, Portland, & Seattle EMD GP38's (#200-205)

Does anyone know if the SP&S GP38's #200-205 recieved a pre-BN paint scheme? These units were delivered in 2/70 and I'm not sure if they had SP&S features or an SP&S paint since the merger one month later. I know that they became BN #2072-2077 then, BNSF #2139-2142. BN #2075 also wore the 'Pacific Pride' Scheme.

Thanks (In advance)

They came in BN paint and numbers. The SP&S had those numbers set aside for them but were actually never assigned.
