LIRR Heritage/Sticker Units

Post by Pensyfan19 »

Hello everyone. This is my first post on railroad.net! :-D

I have noticed within the past few years, there have been some heritage stickers on the front or side of certain locomotives.
In particular, engine 404 had two 1970s MTA logos on the front of the engine around October of 2018, and then reduced to one sticker around late April of 2019, and then repainted with no heritage stickers (or the present day MTA logo) around September of 2019. Engine 416 has one MTA sticker on the front of the engine and as far as I know still has this sticker, and engine 420 had the same sticker for about a few weeks in late 2018. Engine 511 had a Dashing Dan sticker on the side of the locomotive from mid 2017 to early 2019.
Does anyone know of any other DM30AC/DE30ACs, C3 cab cars, or even M3s or M7s which have/had any heritage paint schemes or heritage stickers? (I am already aware of the heritage paint schemes and stickers on SW1001s and MP15ACs, such as 166 and 105)

None of the passenger equipment has officially sanctioned heritage logos. More than likely just shop or engine service personnel with pride in their history applying them. Hence their removal.

The only fleet that has old logos, allowed, at least not bothered are the 1000/1500s and thats likely not even officially allowed.

Ok. Thank you. Does anyone happen to know if something like this, such as similar heritage stickers placed on the locomotives, happened to any other locomotives on the LIRR before, other than the ones which were listed?
