A Penn Central SD35 is sandwiched between two Conrail GP38s.

Show me a paint scheme from a merger.

The Erie-Lackawanna had an attractive post-merger paint scheme:

Well, it's not very flashy at all, but this is what you'd see after the merger of the Canadian Northern, the InterColonial Railway of Canada,  Canadian Government Railways, Grand Trunk Railway, Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, and a number of smaller roads...

I don't even have a photo of the early CNR steamers, but it was simply CANADIAN NATIONAL, spelled-out in white paint on the sides of the tender.

Wayne

Show us another, more interesting merger paint scheme, please.

Try the Illinois Central Gulf, merger of the Illinois Central & Gulf Mobile & Ohio!

How about another merger scheme!

Rule 1: This is my railroad.

Rule 2: I make the rules.

Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!

Chessie System. Kind of a corporate stock buyout of the C&O/B&O/Western Maryland rather than a merger but then went on to join SCL/L&N and the "Family Lines" to form CSX.

Ed: "Show me another safety slogan OR another example of green rolling stock."

Here is one from my updated website. A couple of NYC freight trains passing each other under the RT-32 overpass on the BRVRR layout. The Jade Green caboose at left should meet Ed's request.

More green rolling stock, please.

Well, Coca-Cola turned out to not be so popular. Here is one out-of-focus a little. The poster on the building on the right is for Atlanta-Based Coca-Cola. This is on the Country Roads sectional portable layout.

.

.

I am going to widen the template a little bit.

.

Show me anything beverage related.
