A quick online search. These cars were a group of 100 built for CNW circa 1995 by Trenton Works in Canada. UP acquired CNW during April, 1995.
Were they ordered before or after the UP takeover? Don't know. But you don't need 100 cars to maintain a trademark usage. I would think UP would have gotten them from the factory in UP paint if that had been possible.
I consider this kind of paint to be a money saving/graffiti taking over kind of thing.
