This locomotive has Three i say again Three Logo's on it. They are PRR, PC, & CR. Credit is given to Brian Thompson who took the photo as well. Here is the photo.

    What I really like about that last one Matthew is the way it validates what I did! :) Both of the Keystone logos remain intact as is the orginal Pennsey numbering. Cool! Thing about the pic that made me smile was that one could do a complete botch up job putting PC logos on a Pennsylvania unit, partially scrub them off, and still end up with a convincing model of a prototype! :) :) :)
    Thanks for posting these pics!

    Boy that is unusual to see an SD45 with three logos. I guess they never got around to repaint it in that time period. But the engine looks like its not being used at that time the way it looks in the picture.


    Long live the fallen flags!!!!!!!

    Not a stupid question :)

    By looking at the paint and knowing something of the history of the railroads involved, one can see;

    1. The original Brunswick Green (so dark that it is acceptable to paint a model black) of the Pennsylvania R.R. with its classic "Keystone" logo is seen.

    2. The next railroad, the Penn Central and its classic "wrestling worms" logo, probably just painted over enough of the Pennsy's logo to send it back out quickly, a job that quickly faded as...

    3. Conrail had its hour with her, covering the previous two logos with a cheap, fast and dirty spray over. Time and the elements reduced the shoddy work in short order, thus leaving us with a paint job that tells everthing. :thumb:
