For you Baltimore foamers.  Empty oil train K-055 headed towards Baltimore has the NS EL unit as the second unit.  Not running headend because of a cracked windshield.  Will probably arrive sometime this evening.

EL?  Thought they had DLW and Erie but no EL which was an oversight...

It is the Erie unit.  Seems like everyone was posting EL and I didn't catch their error.

Fun-fact about the Erie unit, it is carrying a different horn than it was originally built with because some kid (I say kid but he isn't all that young) climbed up on top while it was tied down and literally wrenched it off.
NS didn't realize that it was missing it's horn until the next time it was supposed to be a lead unit.

The guy that did it literally has no care for the fact that he's stealing railroad property and he's done it to a few other locomotives other than the Erie unit.

I also thought they had an EL.  Could have sworn I saw the thing along the Big Sandy.  But apparently it was the Lackawanna...

The way the Lackawanna unit is painted I just assumed and never bother to look and see if It was a Erie Lackawanna unit.Oh well they still look a whole lot better than those botched up Union Pacific heritage locos.

Nice.  That's a very handsome scheme.

A lot of the older schemes look good on modern units.

   read somewhere that the Original Plan was an EL unit by NS.
   but they changed that later when decding to do both an Erie
   and a Lackawanna unit.
    so we did lose the EL unit,but the Lackawanna is so close that
   a little imagination puts the EL Diamonds on that unit.
   still waiting to see any of the Heritage units,but they don't seem
   to run them on branches like the R&D line here.

Just use stickers like EL did in the beginning.

If only they weren't on those butt-ugly ACe units.   :trollface:
