    What you have to remember is DTG cannot just paint a train in any livery.
    They need a License from the Companies that hold the Logos Copyright.
    One of the reasons you cannot buy Union Pacific Locos outside the US of A.

    The users of the game can make Repaints because they are not charging any money for their work
    And if you were to download these repaints you would have the trains you want.

    Technically, it's BNSF that has that "US-only" problem

    Apart from the 800 which DTG made on release there are not many unbranded items available.
    And you were right about UP - as pointed out in the thread above I should have said BNSF.

    Unless they licensed specific models rather that "Here, have our livery". I've also heard that the arrangement may be coming to an end and they need to renegotiate.
    Contract terms are weird things...
