I think one of the things that nudged his perception over the edge was the incident years ago where Railfan/Railroad was reporting on a possible resurgence of steam technology, and the cover featured the artist's rendering of a very modern looking steam locomotive, all cowled up like an FP45 or something, and it sported the red and yellow Allegheny Midland paint scheme.  A lot of people thought that was bit presumptuous, especially since RR/RF was supposed to be the Carstens Proto journal.

I believe that may have been one of the factors in his departure from Carstens as well...  Or at least so I'd heard...

I have a side on painted image of the ACD3000 in a book somewhere, and iirc, they have it painted in either the chessie scheme or something like it.
