Also good to know they can strip that fugly-assed crap off when this latest phase of BS has moved on to the next fiasco.

It is possible (or IMO even likely) that a lot of the colorful decorations are printed vinyl stickers.

Sort of like decals for the prototype sized engines?  That's a bit of life imitating art. Maybe they should have let a model railroader design the graphics. None of us would have created a paint scheme so ugly for our freelanced railroad.

I would guess that they would just be large scotchlight decals... really no bigger then the flag they already put on their engines...

I know Via used vinyl decals for some of their advertising schemes... the Spiderman 2 decals stuck so good some wouldn't come off when the promotion was over... (edit: without taking the paint with them)

I don't know what they use for the nose emblem, but it's very hard to peel off. (Don't ask 🙄)
