    Browsing thru the Trainboard forum, I have found these «nice» vehicles adapted for the die-hard RR fan. I wanted to partage them with you. :D :D

    This one is for the UP buffs:

    I LOVE the headlight in the middle of the bonnet of the UP van.

    For us steam guys it's a bit more difficult! Time to make a Stanley Steamer I think...

    There's a guy here in Connecticut that drives around in a pick-up painted in Hew Haven McGuinness theme. I see it once in awhile, usually when I don't have a camera.

    Jeez! :D I don't now how it can be in the US, but here the regulations about the size & position of the vehicle lights are very restrictive (not to speak of your lady ones). :rolleyes:

    All non-standard modifications must get checked and pass an oficial exam, in order to get the official authorization sealed in the vehicle papers. Without it, your vehicle is not «legal», and yoy risk heavy fines (ouch!! :( ). You can rest assured hat these lights NEVER would got an approval!! (moreover, the first highway patrol that you passed by will get -first- a heart attack, -second- he will jump out of their pants to catch you, and -finally- you will get a severe «pocket-attack»!!!) :eek: :mad: :oops: :D

    (what a pity! The tough of having an ol' van painted «Grande Gold» with four stripes was interesting! Sure that it would turn a few heads...! :p )

    Over here the laws are not so restrictive. If he turns those lights on while driving on the highway, he would have a problem. The red light is illegal in California at least. Red lights must always face the rear of the vehicle, and must never be visible from the front, police cars excepted. If he doesn't turn the lights on, or if they are not hooked up, he will have no problem.
