For railroad historians, especially those of the late, great New York, Chicago & St. Louis, it was like a dream come true: the unveiling of a brand-new locomotive sporting Nickel Plate Road diesel livery in the year 2012. As part of Norfolk Southern's highly acclaimed program of painting several of its new EMD and GE locomotives in paint schemes commemorating NS's long line of ancestral companies, new NS GE ES44AC No. 8100 wears the revered multi-stripe NKP scheme. It is shown at work at Ashtabula (Ohio) Harbor on April 5, 2012. Photo: ROGER DURFEE.
