With the Conrail split came a division of the equipment, and by the fall of 2000, the markings for the engines indentifying their new owners were changing almost daily, especially for NS. With such a pace often comes variety.
For some units, they kept their Conrail number and got a decal on the battery box, either the PRR or NS.
|Somebody had some blue paint lying around, so these happened. If all you are used to are black and white, maybe all blues start to look the same.|
|The favored patch seemed to be white with black letters and numbers. Sometimes the area where they were destined to be operated was added, such as CHAPMAN or POTTSTOWN.|
|Another version was a black patch with white letters and numbers.|
|The interlocking PRR was a nice touch.|
|And then there is this. Guess someone did not like the first version.|
|Of course, all of this mishegas would only be temporary. Conrail CR 6101 was one of the early ones to get a completely new paint job, taking the black as NS 8343 in June 1999.|
