As-delivered from EMD, the 605, 606, and 621 ABC sets all had grey roofs, as
did the 661 and 662 AB sets. I would assume that the entire run of the
"pusher" F3s (655-662 AB) had the gray roofs, but from photographic
evidence, the gray roofs quickly were painted black (I guess the DL&W
discovered that it's hard to keep a gray roof clean!)

Attached is an EMD builder's photo of the 621 ABC set as proof. :)
