Norfolk Southern just posted this on their YouTube channel:

Personally, I don't like the placement of the company logo and road number on the cab.  Just looks awkward...  :?

Cheers,

I like the video.  Give you a good look at how a locomotive is painted.  This unit came into DC Union Station yesterday for display.

I was wondering about that one.  Pictures of it started showing up on Heritageunits a few days ago.

As I mentioned in another thread, Unit 6963 was parked in the Montview Yard in Lynchburg, VA yesterday afternoon.  It was hard to see all of the details due to where it was parked but it definitely is unique.

That cab is busy and cluttered with graphics. Didn't anyone tell NS all the cool kids wear their baseball caps backwards now?

I really like what NS does with all these special paint schemes.

But I also really wish they'd hire a new designer. A lot of them just seem kinda "off".

GO Rail. Hmmm, they spelt Conrail wrong  :trollface:

Used up the last of the paint from the Illinois Terminal unit.
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.
