    Thank you Sir,

    Disclosure, I am die hard Southern Pacific Fan, due to the fact I live in California, where I saw lots of action. I also like and believe in Short Lines like PHL (Pacific Harbor Line 2500 miles of dedicated track-age) here in the Ports of California and a host of other great running Short Lines too.

    That's great seeing those colors again!

    The Maine Central, up until its demise among the Guilford mess, had some former ROCK covered hoppers, some boxcars and a GP38 still in the ROCK colors.

    Now if they could grow and rebuild the line west...

    I know at the time being, one locomotive is in the ROCK scheme, and another one is in progress. Are they going to paint their entire roster like that, or just those two locomotives?
