Chuck Zeiler General Impressive photo, thanks. Got the flag in the bacground too, good work. Do you have any more infomation about the origin of this paint scheme? 1/14/2009 12:13:07 AM
J. Williams General The origin is called a "TAGGER". Cool shot! 1/14/2009 12:20:31 AM
John Briggs General I'm pretty sure it "taggers" were UP car dept guys. This yard isnt known for taggers & tresspassers are caught fairly quickly. The unit never left the yard so I suspect it was an employee(s). The paint used (red,yellow, silver) would all be available to the employees. Plus, I've seen "The Pacific" on several other units so I think its kind of a joke. 1/14/2009 12:06:53 PM
John Briggs General also, look at all of my pics of this unit & you will see this occurred over a few months time period not all at once. someone took their time 1/14/2009 12:09:32 PM
Anthony Alex General I think it was the UP guys too. I don't see taggers as being this useful (for the railroad) with their graffitti. 1/14/2009 10:05:12 PM
George Redmond General Good shot. 1/18/2009 6:55:08 PM
