Union Pacific Rogers 4-4-0 reskins, version 2, by Daniel Gollery (Trainboi1 on RWA)
An update of the existing pack "UP 119 Sister Locomotives" on RWA, incorporating DanSSG's patch, model upgrades, and further historical research.
In brief: This is a set of 5 reskins on Smokebox's UP 119 pack to represent the five Rogers 4-4-0s assigned to the Union Pacific Utah Division starting in 1868. It also includes a set of 55 quickdrive consists based on prototypical Union Pacific consists.
QD Requirements: Additionally to the UP 119 model from Steam required for the skins, the separately included Quickdrives pack requires both 1860s rolling stock packs and my UPRR passenger car reskins (which also require Jupiter) in order to work properly.
Real history: To furnish its newly created Utah Division, the Union Pacific placed orders with several major builders for new locomotives adhering to the requests of the division's master mechanic. The result was a set of unusual, but modern and rather handsome, locomotives. Numbers 113-115 were 2-8-0s furnished by Baldwin with massive 20x24 cylinders on 49-inch drivers, designed to replace two or even three existing 4-4-0s on the lengthy construction trains run by Jack Casement. Nos. 116-120, 121-125, and 126-130, meanwhile, were supplied respectively by Rogers, Schenectady and Taunton, and were designed for more normal service, bearing the standard 16x24 cylinders on fairly small 54-inch drivers. All eighteen engines were constructed with tall straight or "shotgun" stacks and extended smokeboxes, hoping to get the greatest possible combustion out of Utah's poor-quality coal. Aside from the well-proportioned front ends on these engines, they also featured a completely novel invention - a Monitor-style injector designed and built by Rogers and mounted between the drivers on the fireman's side. There were other oddities, too - the bell cord hung along the engineer's side, while the cylinder drains were actuated on the fireman's side - revealing that the Utah Division evidently expected crews to operate these devices far differently to what had long since become standard on other roads.
Historical disclaimer: While this engine is as accurate as I could make it, I am not an expert on Rogers. Based on Jim Wilke's research, the only error I know of is that I did not double the red stripe on the tender rave; however, there may be other errors of which I am unaware.
Unpack Assets\Smokebox\UP119\UP119Assets.ap before installing. 
Then, unpack UP_Rogers_Reskins_Mk2.rwp using Railworks Utilities. 
Make sure to copy all of the .GeoPcDx files from Assets\Smokebox\UP119\RailVehicles\Steam\UP119\Default\Engine to the adjacent "Engine 2" and "Engine Reskins" folders.
If you want to replace the original 116 and green 119, you can also install UP_Rogers_Reskin_Replacers.rwp using Utilities.
For quickdrives, once you have installed my passenger car reskins, install UP_Rogers_Quickdrives.rwp using Utilities. Warning - this installs 55 quickdrives, so make sure you're prepared for a lot of scrolling in your future.
Credits: Smokebox's help and support cannot be overstated. He provided original source files for the tender tank texture, and beta tested the original pack. While I've replaced some of his lettering on the Schenectady engines, I only modified his originals on these because they were better than what I could produce by any other means.
Jim Wilke, Jon Davis, Kyle Wyatt, Andrew Brandon, Randy Hees, John Ott, and many others have worked together for years to publicize the information used in creating these skins. Their importance cannot be overstated in trying to do historically accurate Western representations of any kind. Since there is not as much remaining data for Rogers and Crerar & Adams products in the West, their insight proved invaluable. I was lucky enough to get a copy of 119's spec sheet from Jim Wilke via Andrew Brandon, and some of the key data on Crerar & Adams headlights came from John Ott's research when he was developing a complete locomotive profile on the 119.
