Not always. Some manufacturers invest the time & effort to get it right and are
rewarded for it.
If a manufacturer screws it up, you bet we'll have a lynching. The point is that there
is no reason to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on tooling and then apply
sub-standard artwork. Especially when the information is out there for the asking
and the manufacturer is capable of doing better.
This attitude that the manufacturers should be allowed to "wing it" and then give
them a pass when they screw up a paint job is just wrong. Without feedback, we
will continue to get incorrect models. If they are willing to do Penn Central equipment,
those interested must provide the information to help them do it right, and then call
them on it if they choose to go it alone or ignore the input.

This is not an issue for those that can paint & decal and want to. However, there is a
large segment of the hobby that "have a life" that prefers properly decorated locos &
Without feedback, a manufacturer can't tell if slow sales of a particular road name
are due to a lack of interest, or if the modeling community has rejected the execution
of that particular scheme. Slow sales for a road name can be the kiss of death for
that road name when the next product release comes around.
Then we will all be back to painting & decaling for everything.
