Interesting paint scheme on the #501.......CLEARLY an "after the fact" photo touch-up, but I do believe I recal hearing about alternate paint jobs on some units, akin to the #301 and 216. But it begs the question, at such a late date, why would anyone bother conceptualizing a new paint scheme, on top of these engines technically being Conrail units, thus making it unlikely. Regardless, a neat "what if" and because of the B&W photo, open to GREAT speculation.
