    I did this a few years ago I think it was 1999. I participate in November open house in my area. If you look at my location you will see I am in Conrail country. I purchased this loco specifically for this reason just for my open house. I got a lot of comments about it. Some not so nice but it is all in fun. Now it is just a shell hidden away in a drawer but I got it out just for you guys. Conrail fans I warned you.

    Being a Conrail fan, I cannot condone this type of behavior. Hand over the shell....announce1




    On the other hand that is an interesting rendition of what the CSX might have done.

    A heinous crime to be sure!
    I wouldn't mind CSX so much if they would adopt the Conrail blue. They were nice to look at! I see CSX every day and they are about as boring as it gets!
    Nice job on the conversion. I do see quite a few that look pretty similar to that. Fewer and fewer of them though as they slowly get painted fully. I did see a pure conrail paint job the other day. The blue was a little old and dirty, but it was still nice to see!

    I still see quite a few still in full conrail colors around here. Mostly on the NS lines. They're a bit slower on the repainting I guess. Never did see any CSX partial paint over like that. Haven't even seen too many CSX Conrail mixes around here. Nice paint job though. I do however miss the blue. Actually I would rather see the old Pennsy green.

    Saunders and Perlman, but I'm guessing that was a rhetorical question. :D
