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.

I hear & understand ya Lloyd, Im just not sure why NS would want to be upstaged by UP. Seems to me, by providing PTC systems or helping with the cost for the PTC they could help keep their "privately owned" Hertiage loco's running.
Interesting bit of info on the 20 loco's being repainted. Loved to hear more on that subject. NS would make my day if they would supply the CW with their own loco's again. I've been lobbying for CW painted loco's but its all fell on deaf ears so far.
