Seeing more photos show up on railpictures.

Looks like all the decal-bonnets are identical.

A paint job for a locomotive is in the $20K-40K range.  It takes quite a few gallons for each engine.

Was watching a aircraft site - painting a commercial aircraft is between $100K & $200K or more - depending how fancy and artistic the owner wants the plane to be.

A friend has a 30 foot race car trailer that he had repainted about 15 years ago - $3500 for a two tone white on top and yellow on the bottom - straight line separation.
