I agree...nothing special, compared to the Heritage Units...or IAIS's Rock Island tribute...but its better then nothing...I hope its a leader for awhile...otherwise it will be hard to distinguish in consist with other UP units as it gets dirty and grimy looking.

Still, better than any other UP GEVO, and they might be more quick to wash this one than others.

The lettering on the rear wing looks like s**t.

Check out the photoshop action going on. Watch the number of tracks before the unit and the number afterwards.

Good eye! I suppose the spur in the background could've ended, but knowing the photoshop skills of other class one railroads, it appears to be another photoshop failure.

I thought the clouds looked a bit funny as well at first glance.

Looks to me that the 2nd set of tracks are just below the front set in the back of the unit. If your going to ps them out wouldn't you do the fronts too?

UP units really look awful without the red frame stripe, they should have left it in place and done yellow scotchlight stripes
