That is absolutely outstanding! Much better than I thought it might turn out. Kudos to Norfolk Southern for making this happen. That pic isn't even a day old; you can't capture a locomotive paint-job too much closer to "new" than that.

The other NS heritage units, while with plenty of appeal of their own, seem somewhat drab when compared to this one. But what else would you expect from the Reading??? :-D

Yeah, they did a great job. From what I understand the RCT&HS supplied NS with detailed information about the scheme, and it sure looks like they used that information.

Fantastic job NS!

Now if we could find a way to sneak it onto the Bethlehem Branch.... ;)

Convince CSX to have a run through on the New York Branch with the 1067 leading!
