The locos from 1960-1980 were monster diesels! They had newwer logos of old railroads! and massive air horns!

NS was created in 1982 from the merger of the Norfolk and Western Railway and the Southern Railway Company. They still had individual paint schemes in '89, but they were probably the first of the mega-mergers.

Well...they started re-painting newer units right away...GP35s on the verge of retirement didn't warrant much attention!

Patches and re-paints seem start slowly...witness early BNSF...even today there are still unpainted (but patched) units. UP seems to be the RR in the biggest hurry!

UP? try CSX! the second they got their share of Conrail units they were ALL repainted within the year(possibly the first 6 months)! besides I don't mind seeing the original Santa Fe colors still around, the war bonnet scheme is my personal fave!

Apparently crossing visibility wasn't much of a concern back then for the NW...
