These drawing numbers, and their various revision dates, are presented here so that this basic information is available pending a formal book about Union Pacific diesel locmotive paint schemes. Such a reference work, with photos, diagrams, and narrative analysis, would be an excellent subject for a book from the Union Pacific Historical Society.

In almost all cases, PL&N in the "Description" column denotes "Painting, Lettering & Numbering, with Scotchlite adhesive" in the drawing's title block.

All drawings referred to below were made available through the courtesy of Warren Johnson and Dick Harley.
