There can also be accounting reasons. And holding on to the trademark.
Yes, indeed! I myself have recently seen Union Pacific covered hoppers with CMO (Chicago, St Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha) reporting marks. Allegedly there are also UP open hoppers with MSTL (Minneapolis & St Louis) reporting marks out there. Back in Des Moines, I often saw C&NW MoW equipment with C&NW heralds and CGW or even FDDM reporting marks.
Long live those fallen flags!
Getting closer to St. Patty's Day, more green showing up!
Found these in Auburn Yard today, the crane is cool!
Just noticed the BN car is splitting numerical sequence hoppers too!
Ah. That is cool!
A little bit of BN green was seen rolling in the Southwest, through Flagstaff AZ, two days ago at about 1:20 in this video:
Daaaaang, some great stuff on that video!!
3-way meet at 8:50 is awesome!!
The Virtual Railfan channel on youtube has a new "grab bag" highlight reel, taken from their various railcams, posted to it every few days and previous videos can also be found there.
Following is the link to the live Santa Fe Junction railcam (which also has a 12-hour rewind):

Last light on a WB grain load at MP 3 on the BNSF Glasgow Sub.
And just for kicks, the glint shot:
*Sigh* If only these were in NP lettering , (I do not know the exact heritage of these specific cars), it could be 1967 all over again.
Occasionally, the parade of earthworm grainers is interrupted by the classics.
Yes! The defiant ones! See those every now and then.
I was just recalling that when NS and CSX divided up CR's locomotives and rolling stock, they resuscitated PRR (for NS) and NYC (for CSX) reporting marks. It was quite a brilliant solution, allowing the equipment to be dispersed, yet still identified as former CR property. The logos never appeared of course, but seeing those old road references was mighty cool.
What year is it again? So clean, and hardly any graffiti!
Saw this in Stockton, Ca, the same place as a few weeks ago. It had a few friends with it, too.
More green in the NW!
A classic on a westbound manifest in Minot.
