You got to hand it to Union Pacific, they may not know much about keeping trains running but they havent messed up a paint scheme yet
Pat, I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt, and assume you were joking when you wrote this. Haven't messed up a paint scheme yet?!?!? I can think of SP, C&NW, and D&RGW paint all being messed up recently with cancerous UP patches slapped on them. As a point, how many ex-Conrail units have you seen with a Thoroughbred or a CSX patch slapped across the nose? Or a SOO unit with a CP stenciled across the snoot?

I'm all for remembering heritage, but how many hundreds of units did UP 'destroy' by patching them instead of keeping them in their pre-merger paint? Just a thought...
