UP 1191 in a flaming paint job
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?

The origin is called a "TAGGER". Cool shot!

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.

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

I think it was the UP guys too. I don't see taggers as being this useful (for the railroad) with their graffitti.
