Think this might be the CNW...
Author: jgilmore

<Sarcasm> Let's see, plenty of CNW equipment, a unique yard tower at Proviso complete with logo, and crappy Chicago weather. Taken in the early 90s... JG

But the yellow really pops, and it’s not “Zito” yellow either!

I heard Mr, Zito speak at a CNW Historical Society dinner many, many years ago.  At that time, he said that even HE did not like the Zito Yellow.

In the final years of the C&NW, many units were repainted in the traditional yellow scheme.  A good number wore the Operation Lifesaver scheme, too.  This was probably due to the realization that "new yellow" bleached out rather quickly.  GE had to repaint the 8500 series C40-8's as a warranty expense.   Unfortunately these bright yellow units were described in the railfan community as "Zito Yellow".
