Union Pacific applied this one-off livery, depicting the Stars and Stripes of the US flag, in 1994 as a fundraiser for the US-based charity, United Way. The locomotive operated as part of UP’s regular roster for many years. It also was spotted at various railroad events and photo ops across the United States.
