The PC locomotive is part of Norfolk Southern's "Heritage" fleet. They have modern diesels painted for all their parent roads, including the NYC (SD70ACE #1066). Union Pacific does the same.

Thank you!

I just posted a new thread about this in the TALK section.

What is the "Heritage" fleet?

P.S. My father was a railroader, but there is a LOT I have no clue about the rail roads.

Did they have Heritage fleets back when my father was a railroader.... roughly 1940 to 1975
I do not know what year he started for sure, I do know what year he retired.

Heritage units are locomotives painted in the livery of the fallen flag railroads that were all absorbed by the bigger conglomerates. Mostly the Norfolk Southern...

What he said! :-)

Although I am more familiar with the UP units out here on the west coast. Here is an example of UP heritage unit painted for the C&NW.

A few new ones. BNSF power has been pretty much regular power here in NNJ the last several months. The CSX engine is passing what was New York Central search light signals at Auto 13 in Dumont, NJ. This site was 4 main tracks wide and where the signal's are was a large interlocking tower that controlled the switches along with a large coach yard. All of which is long gone and new PTC era signals are installed to the left.
