I don't see ITMZ marks on the unit. No marks at all..
On the sides, near the bottom of the ladder grab irons, you'll see the numerals "83" in white.  Below them, in a much smaller font, it says "ITM 83".  If you zoom-in on this poorly-lit photo (thanks, Mother Nature) you might be able to see it.

If you see the locomotive in person, you'll also see on the engineer's side that someone has drawn the PC "mating worms" logo in the dust on the unit (no it wasn't me).

I Like the CR Idea. Put CR on the Nose and Put Conrail on Both Sides. Bring Back the Early Conrail Scheme. Fantastic Idea.

Nice piece in today's Indianapolis Star about the ITM FairTrain, including a video:

Not to open a can of angry worms, but I thought the 1-spot was going to be added after the opening weekend?

for that matter, put the PC mating worms on it first, fade them, and then patch CR on top of it. ;D

When I was at Fishers late Wednesday afternoon I was told the NKP1 would be added today. Slight delay in repairing (or replacing?) the air conditioning compressor.

Unless they did it after 5pm yesterday it's photoshopped.
The gates are going down and the people are starting to frown.

17 down, 3 to go.

Not photoshopped, but not permanent either. These were supposedly decal stickers. They were removed after taking photos.

I still think it would be nice to see it in Penn Central until they Repair it and Repaint it. I remember seeing the Penn Central F Units switching at Warman Ave at Sankey Hill Yard between Warman Ave and Belmont Ave on the NYC Side.
