Looking sharp 4012! Kudos to Steamtown for making her look presentable again

Looks great.  It takes so much effort to repaint something that large, I sure hope they were able to use a really good quality paint so it will stay looking sharp for some time.

I'm presuming the big $$ project was asbestos abatement & remediation.
There's also 'accurate restoration', and museum-quality presentation.
The best paint, if it's to remain outside, uncovered, is two-part  "Imron"..

But that has challenges too.

Looks like she is turned around, so she is no longer facing into the sun for afternoon pictures.

I think you are seeing it in the morning sun.
