Actually, PC engines were painted in Pantone 13D black. I've seen pictures of
PRR and PC engines together, and the difference is quite noticeable in good

Personally, I think NS should use some of the blue paint they're buying from
CR on their own power, but I doubt that will happen. Too many Conrail Quality
logos to paint out. :-( Still, if NS would jazz up their paint scheme some,
it would look better. Maybe they could go for a "red N"... :-)
