Any idea if 119 will take after 104 and receive a makeover? Some records are proving the current paint from the 90s to be inaccurate.

Here are some drawings and models from a more modern understanding of UP's 119 actual appearance:

The smokebox should be black rather than grey, the boiler should be grey instead of blue, the cab should be a deep brown instead of light pine, and the tender's colors need to be reversed... allegedly haha.
