UP 3300 "One of a Kind"

Hello all, I'm new to this forum, So I'll make this my 1st post.
Some of you will know me from other railroad related sites.

This passed here yesterday on NS Train #393.
The locomotive recieved this special paint job in 1994 & still wears it today.

Here's the locomotives history & other photos...

Moving at track speed...Purvis,MS.


Stopped at the South end of the Dragon passing siding.


All photos taken by my friend Andy Tucker (bnsf9647) from Hattiesburg, MS & used with his permission...Thanks Andy.  :D

Great stuff Glenn.

Looks like a fun project for someone that can actually paint.   Unique paint, lots of fine details, mild weathering...


Very good to see you back at home, as well.

Didn't Conrail have a boxcar painted up for United Way years back with lots of stars on it.  Wonder if UP didn't borrow the stencils from Conrail?

Nice shots John and Glenn. The prototype is holding up rather well. I could have used these shots years ago when I painted mine. I got the blue a little too dark. ::)

I read on the Yahoo Group {LocoNotes} that UP 3300 was re-aquired and returned to service.

I don't have any details, But I'll try to find out.  :)
