Does a Jersey Boy like me proud... thanks NS and thanks Casey for the GREAT shot. Love the inclusion of the umbrella.

This has got to be my favorite unit. I like the nice rainy day feeling too and I can relate.

Kinda dissapointed they chose this darker shade of red and no black and white nose stripes, that would've looked alot better. Oh well I won't complain too much about heritage units, nice shot Casey.

Still partial to the Pennsy unit myself, but this is still one great looking unit!

It needs the black and white stripes on the nose, helvetica type for the lettering, but how do we know the direction the Valley would have taken had it lasted into the present, given it's propensity for changing paint schemes. The umbrella in the frame does not hurt the 5/5 rating from me, at least.

They haven't turned out a turkey yet! (What does that say about modern paint schemes?) And I know this is railfan blasphemy, but sometimes the details are more visible on a day such as this. (And I'll second Charles' comment about the umbrella being a nice prop!)

Very nice, and the umbrella is great.

When you have lemons, make lemonade! Nice touch with the NS logo on the umbrella.

Where did you find the black and Cornell Red umbrella?

Nice shot Casey, NS keep em coming.

I grew up in an area where I was surrounded by the New York Central, the Pennsylvania the Baltimore and Ohio, the Nickel Plate, the Erie, and the Lehigh Valley RRs. All of which are now part of the Norfolk Southern Conglomerate. I am having a ball seeing all of these heritage units. What I like best about all of them is the fact that all you see of the parent company on each of these is the small letters NS under each unit number. Casey thank you forgetting these pictures and for sharing them with us. Dave "Grampy" Doty.

That is a clever, clever shot - from a corporate and photographic standpoint. Keep up the great work Casey, it's great to see a railroad valuing high-quality photographs of their equipment.

Well done again NS and Casey! This Evo looks like it wants to start hauling the freight right now.
Posted by Dave Blaze... on April 23, 2012 who is going to be the first one to post a shot of this beauty leading a train out of Pattenburg Tunnel? I'll be anxiously awaiting!

Great shot Casey! Must repeat the fact that the umbrella with the NS logo really compliments the photo. Excellent!!! Keep em coming and once again, hats off to NS on another fantastic job!

Well done, again NS ... great shot Casey!

Gee that sure looks nice. To the nitpickers on details, did you notice that the locomotive looks a bit different than anything the Valley had? I love this program, and applaud it all the way.

Altoona's on a roll, Keep'em coming NS.

That's awesome, can't wait for the Reading version. Nice shot.

Shadows in the Rain!

I would have liked the black and white nose stripes, too, but this is one pretty unit. Besides, the Valley had so many variations, anything goes now. Everyone has a favorite LV paint job, but my vote goes to the one that's on a brand new working unit - this one! And - hats off to the excellent composition with the NS umbrella on a rainy day! Looking forward to seeing a shot of this one reflected in New Market Pond, or with the Hill-to-Hill Bridge in the background.

Wheres the nose stripes? Oh well it still looks sharp.
