You know, I've got this fantasy of a replica Erie K1 Pacific being built...

Get Koreans to contribute something... and duplicate the engine as seen 'in its prime' as if it had been donated overseas...

... complete with Russia iron boiler jacketing

Note the lowercase 'i'.  There is absolutely no reason to imitate this with paint -- you'd either duplicate the color and pattern on 'wrap' stock and adhere it to your cladding/clothing, or just go ahead and make your own... we know reasonably well what both methods were, and how to do them well enough for the "10-foot car" look that would typify fan exposure to that boiler anyway.
