RAILROAD HERITAGE

Many of today’s railroad companies are a combination of other railroad’s merged into one another or simply purchased outright and abandoned. For example, today’s CSX is a combination of the Chessie system and Seaboard System which included multiple railroad’s like the B&O, WM, C&O, L&N, ACL just to name a few.

Amtrak began in 2011 to celebrate it’s 40th anniversary by painting 5 locomotives in schemes off it’s past. Norfolk Southern took the lead to celebrate it’s 30th anniversary in 2012 by painting 20 new locomotives in  paint schemes to honor the “fallen flags” as they’re commonly called by rail enthusiasts that made up the Class one company into what it is today.
