It would be interesting to find out who authorized and put up the sign. It is rather strange that a large sophisticated corporation with law, public relations, and advertising departments would overlook something like that. These folks routinely pay for images for their ad programs, they know the drill. I'd put my money on some local managers, maybe even railfan managers (who else would have found the image on RP) who might know how to run trains but never even thought about copyright law, figured anything on the internet was fair game, and/or figured any railfan would be thrilled to see his picture used that way. Nice picture, interesting use.
