Steaming Mad or Diesel Obsessed

Steam engines seem to generate more passion than a modern diesel with most Evergreen  members but no survey has been taken to prove that. This 4-8-4 used to be a pristine SP&S locomotive but now it has joined the ranks of the Northern Pacific roster in a weathered format! I need to work on that depth of field issue Phil.
Just so we don't leave out the mighty Great Northern I added an emblem on top of our engine house just like they had up there in Hillyard. The real one must have been 8 feet in diameter!
Just so we don't leave out the Union Pacific or its little brother Western Pacific here is Pete's new addition to the inventory. The lead unit is one of those heritage units that they did a few years ago.
We may have a new sheriff in town now that Pete has showed off his new interest in weathering his equipment.
Pete is now using chalks in many colors to make his equipment look prototypical.
He has also gone with a lot of graffiti with markers that is sees real ones and tries to emulate them on his equipment. Maybe someone can talk Pete into doing a clinic for the club one night soon! That's Fearless Frank in the background!
