Pour one out …

Pour one out for a short-lived passenger livery

… for a short-lived passenger locomotive & a shorter-lived paint scheme.

The LT&L bought PA-1’s 700-703 from MLW in 1952, operated them through the PV&T merger in 1962, but traded them for C420s in 1966 as part of the great 244 purge. The arrow banner was designed in 1958, was adapted to the passenger blue+white+gold band paint scheme to be applied to the DL-109s & the PA-1s, but then vanished after the merger when the PA-1s were traded in (there are still a couple of RS-32s in the arrow paint, but on the freight version of the paint scheme.)
