WHOOPS! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?

EVERY PERSON IS ENTITLED TO A FEW BAD DAYS AT WORK AND THE CAR’S PAINTER HAS ONE LESS IN HIS QUOTA. ONE DOES WONDER HOW THIS WAS RELEASED FROM THE PAINT SHOP THOUGH.

This photo has a little bit of history attached to it. The Santa Fe Railroad Historical & Modeling Society, Western Archive, donated materials related to the Union Pacific Railroad to the Union Pacific Historical Society and these materials came into my hands as I am a member of the UPHS archive Committee. I found this print and the negative as I went through the box. I scanned the print with the idea of sharing it in this Blog and giving the photographer due credit for the photo. On the back of the print is written “by Wm B Garner” and the print is dated Jan. 1963. If anyone has knowledge of Mr. Garner, and is willing share same with the UPHS, please include in a comment to this Post. Also, if any UPRR painters are out there, please give us some insight how this error might have occurred.
