If you can wrap a coach, you can wrap a loco. ;-)

Is it a wrap rather than paint?

I hope not, those fade / crack in only a couple years.

Just bumping this up with the news that the 1054 has been released by MPI on 12/18.
Have been interchanged to the BVRR (Boise Valley) for furtherance to the UP, but
still there as of this afternoon.

Here you go. This was shared with me, so I don't know who took it.

Looking at the pictures, this is the third paint scheme of this locomotive, 4th if you count the special Greenbush inauguration decor.

That's a decal, not a paint scheme, and the 1052 wears it, the 1054 did not.
