    Sorry I forgot. The camera is a Nikon 4500. I really like it so far.

    Marty, Very nice! great shots and modeling. Did you make the decals? I think you mentioned a similarity to Koesters Alleghany Midland, it sure is there. Good work.

    Thanks Gary and Tyson.
    The decals were made by Rail Graphics. He did a great job and helped with the style of lettering for Indiana Midland. For $100.00 I can do approx. 350-400 pcs of rolling stock. That includes the data for many types of cars and loco's. I have not settled on a scheme for the loco's just yet. The Gp-30 is a NKP LL P2K. I just removed numbers and lettering and kept the stripes. I like the look of a NKP loco, but putting the stripes on a loco may be a challange, especially if it has molded on grab irons. Maybe a solid yellow for the nose? I have 4 RS-3 ready to paint and 2 are the classic line which do not have the molded on grabs. I'll see what happens.

    Excellent photos of some really nice equipment! I've used Rail Graphics, and like their product. They have an great thin film decal, and the print quality is superb.

    Hi Marty, thats one sweet camera you have, the photo's are excellent, even done to the Macro.

    Thanks Shamus
    I don't know how much the camera was. We won it as a doorprise at a company Christmas party on Saturday night. First time we have won anything. I was hoping to win the big widescreen TV, but the couple who won it didn't want to trade.:( :( :(

    Thanks for the kind words guy's.

    Casey if it was not for you and Shamus those pic's would not be possible. Both of you are good teachers. If you recall you gave me some great tips on lighting and camera use in general.

    Ya that mathamatics isn't all it's cracked up to be. I was a mathmatician last week, now I'm a thug. I just kick whoevers plastic butt the boss says too.

    Anywho, great roadname, great font and great colors. Really nice. 20 GP 30's, huh? I thot I was obsessed! :D :D :D

    On the stripes, I have a couple of ideas. I got a decal set that has yellow stripes like that. I can look up what it was supposed to go on. Kind of expensive stripes if you have many to do. Another thot, I bought some 1/8" tape. I plan to lay down parallel rows of the stuff, adjacent to each other, peel off every other one, then spary or air brush it. The only thing I can mess up is the angle. The angle of the dangle. Yep. Ya never can tell who that damned things gunna point at.
