I understand your property, your business and all that. I also get the fact that those companies want people to know whose in charge and all that.Why? The shared assists owns no locomotive. All locos used by SAC are leased from either the NS or CSX.
But shouldn't there be a few engines mandated to stay in conrail colors as long as conrail still technically operated, (even though it's conrail shared assets), not just the few engines they haven't gotten around to painting over yet?
I mean as long as conrail still technically exsists why aren't there engines just becoming like...csa engines?
Just an example, the B&OCT is still a railroad, owns track and has employees, but no engines painted for it.
