KCS Contrast – Pic of the Day

February 18, 2010


KCS symbol PALR (Port Arthur,TX to Laredo,TX) passing through Stafford, TX on Feb. 2, 2009

Today’s Port Arthur – Laredo manifest has two units for power. ES44AC 4706 and SD70ACe 4014 provide a great illustration of the contrast between the new and the old paint schemes.

The lead unit is in the striking new “Heritage” image adopted in 2007, where the trailing unit wears the practical, yet handsome gray scheme that was the KCS image for almost 20 years, from 1989 to 2007.
