WTF are you talking about?? Something on the order of 90% of NS's renumberings included a big black rectangle over the old CR number and new white numbers, some were done with big white rectangle and black numbers, some were done with CR blue painted over and white numbers. CSX's were about the same, but blue paint with yellow/gold numbers.

I think they used what light blue paint they had on hand for the first X number of units that were renumbered, but the vast majority were done like I mentioned.

They didnt do like UP did and put their silly shield or logo over predacessors logos though.
