Because they may do whatever they want with it, whether it's leased or sold.Actually on the note of the paint scheme. It's not really the NKP paint scheme as much as it was the Lake Erie Franklin & Clarion paint scheme that number 20 (the RS-1) came with when the LA&L bought it from the LEF&C. It is my understanding that this same paint scheme or a derivative of it was what Alco would apply to any switcher of this vintage if a paint scheme were not specified on the order.
