    fitz - The cloudy skies and steam escaping make that a beautiful shot! The details of the running gear stand out nicely. And I'll bet she sounded even better!

    The locomotives all look so nice and shiny when they are rainy wet. :)

    There is these two from north of the border img953.jpg img961.jpg
    I like the maroon and grey better than the action red.

    No amount of planning replaces Dumb Luck. Just remember, my friend, To Err Is Human, To Really Screw Up Takes A Computer. :eek:

    I agree. It was a much nicer scheme!

    img429.jpg Ken Yes the PA in Daylight was in the Portland area. I like the daylight paint instead of the red and grey

    Another beautiful PA! Yes, the Daylight scheme looks much better than the bloody nose..,

    Nice GP9s, too. I also agree that the old scheme was better.

    Even in the "Bloody Nose" it's nice to see.

    I found the builder's photo of the museum's RS2 - baby pictures!:p

    That old beast was built in 1949. The photo is from my copy of the Illustrated Treasury of the MLW.

    No idea for now. It being a B&W photo, and possibly taken with a filter, even the constrast may be suspect.

    Here's a site on TrainWeb that shows a few schemes (in color) used over the years, including one that has the same lines but the contrast seems to be inverted. I can't think of a filter that would produce that effect on the B&W photo.

    True to form, the weather service messed up the forecast and instead of the rain holding off until this evening, it started in the morning. It rained the whole time I was there.
