Well, not quite. He's the company's social media manager - he does the Facebook and Twitter feeds - and "railfan" photographer. He's not a professional photographer by trade. He doesn't do official portraits, for example. By trade, he's a former locomotive engineer.

So I've realized there's a serious problem with the Conrail heritage unit. Where are the marker lights?

The market lights issue has been noticed by many. Really serious people are noticing more minor stuff, such as, IIRC, whether the step edges are painted white or yellow.

"Really serious people" need to get a life . . .

There are "really serious people" in all walks of life, and in all hobbies.

Has anyone commented on whether the horns are CR-standard? The knuckles?

If they have, I hope the intent behind the comment was tongue in cheek (as mine was).

It is exactly as NS billed it to be - an attempt to be faithful to the original scheme.

I know "too much". I used to be the keeper of the new locomotive specs for Conrail. There are a bunch of things "not quite Conrail", but it is a gorgeous sight, none-the-less.

Can't wait to get a shot of it!
