Default New look for the Louisville & Indiana

Not that their current green and yellow was all that bad, but check out what the future looks like:


They are definitely giving a nod to their line's former heritage! The plan is reportedly to receive a small group of these rebuilt GP38-3s (Bryan Jones, can you confirm the number?) to supplement their current fleet, which will eventually be repainted, as time permits.

The LIRC has been power short for sometime, and these new units will be replacing leased power. Good news all around!

Not bad but I prefer the green and yellow, reminds me of the Bayline scheme which is about to disappear. Never been a huge Pennsy fan but a cool nod to their heritage.
