Union Pacific Diesel Locomotive Paint Schemes

Modern Era (2000-2005)

This list is intended to document the units completed with the various modern paint scheme changes. It does not cover new units delivered with each of the modern-era changes. The list begins with UP's introduction of the lightning stripe, and the return of the winged nose medallion in 2000.

Below is a listing of repainted units only; new units with these features are not shown. High lightning stripe has been assumed, unless specifically confirmed as low stripe.

(Updated on November 3, 2003 to remove UP GP60 2026 from the list, based on information in a photo Byron Flint dated July 21, 2003 at Dayton, Texas showing 2026 without a lightning stripe. Thanks to Pierre Barbe for sharing the information.)
