2. Hopper loads (what?) were picked up/destined for whom?

Wouldn't be neat if they were to incorporate the retro logo on all of their rolling stock somewhere inconspicuously noticeable (pardon the oxymoron!)?
Mineola, NY is my real home, however I live 60 miles from Mineola, MO. No LIRR here!

FS: Yes-that would be neat. I would rather see this used in an inconspicuous place on LIRR
equipment than the MTA pac-man logo having to be everywhere.

I am thinking something along the lines how Playboy magazine would place their rabbit head logo
hidden somewhere in the cover photograph. It would be interesting to try and find the keystone :wink:

What a great idea! This gives the locomotive some real "class" at last!
Whoever saw to it, thank you!

This logo has been used on all of the MoW rolling stock fleet for the past 4-5 years.
