The engine on the right has been painted maroon and will be in charge of the iconic Broadway Limited between New York and Chicago.

    Now up close with the Crescent Limited engine, the fresh paint gleams in the afternoon sunlight (still drying in some areas) as crowds flock to get a good look at the locomotive.

    BR Brush Type 4 D1838 in its distinct Two-Tone Green livery. One man has had a bad day with his truck on the road, and is now probably just sitting there.
    I call this livery special as it's one of the first liveries I remember seeing of a locomotive 24010_20211003005013_1.png
