I dug up some old footage from my archives of Metra trains with the C&NW cars from 1995! I also caught the last F40PH in RTA blue!

Thats really awesome, I didn't know any of the F40PH-2's in the old blue scheme got ditchlights before they were repainted. That also answered an old question of mine of which unit was the last one in the old RTA scheme. Do you have any other videos like that?

I only saw an engine with the RTA stripes once, sometime in the 90s, and it must have been that one.
