So far there have been few if any changes. N&E still operates a set of former BNSF GE locos. Music City Star runs on this route

So far, I have heard the two people in charge of making the transition for the two companies are both very senior, and wish to retire within about a year. Once the "marriage" is complete with these two folks, you may see some changes start taking place. There is a desire to grow business on the Nashville & Western operation, as well as growth plans for the NERR. The Star operations pretty much lock in when the NERR operates between Nashville and Lebanon, so there likely will not be any big operational changes.

I expect to see a locomotive repainted soon-- Corman is very big on establishing their corporate image.
