It was painted by Dan Pikulski at Dan's Resin Casting. There are more pics on my Facebook page-

Dan has a page as well, he does custom painting and make decals, which he will do in TT for the HO price. I'll attach his list in another post. He doesn't have a website anymore, but has a FB page as well-

This was the first RS that I bought from Ingo as a RTR one. I have a few details I want to try to add, like lenses in the marker lights and a little light weathering. but it's the beginning of the end for the Undecorated Railroad!

The maroon band is paint, the yellow trim is a decal stripe. Lots of masking and fussing around with decals on that that, hence the paid painter! I might have been able to get the band painted on but my luck with decals the stripes would look like the painter had a Rule G violation-
