2006, near Boston.
2008, somewhere else.
This second picture was found on the web and emailed to me. Don’t know where it was taken, but it’s doing some travelling. The paint is still holding up alright and they’ve repainted the trains info* in the “N”.
*Not that I condone this, but… for anyone painting freights, try to not paint over the train’s info. They have to repaint that part, and it’s one of the reasons that they have a problem with freight graffiti. Also, if alot of the numbers are getting painted over in the same yard, it’s a sign to them that trains are being painted in that location.
