I seen this pic floating on FB today, and thought "Damn, it's a great photoshop and not real.  But now I want to paint one up. "

Cool, but the real PC would most likely have used black.   Or perhaps there's a Con-Cor logo on the bottom of the fuel tank where we can't see it?

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

The OP crawled under and looked at fuel tank.  It's actually marked BLI.  While I agree probably would be black, but I could see them doing a few special schemes,  ala NS doing the horse mane schemes.

I wasn't alive during the PC era and have lived my entire life on the western half of the country but for some reason this picture makes me feel nostalgic.

Here is some REAL "current day" (Nov 8 2020... This car is sadly very likely gone now) Penn Central!

I was so shocked to find anything Penn Central rolling around in 2020....  Thanks to some dodgy Conrail paint!

I mean, it's not SO crazy. The Central tried this, after all. https://www.urhs.org/nyc-4083
