You mentioned 4 loco's 611 so the other 3? 4501, NKP & ?
Is PTC taken care of for those loco's?
4501, 630, 765, 611

NS does still promote their Heritage. They sponsor many community events around their system, and there's still 20 locomotives that are now starting to rotate through the paint booth and they aren't coming out black.

Finally concerning PTC.. Any locomotives that have a shot to run on PTC mainlines, will have to be equipped with the equipment. Multiple societies are working towards that goal.
