    Now the computer has been replaced I can again get back to the layout and the trains.

    Here are my latest completed weathering projects (and a couple of extras).

    Excellent looking work!!!
    Is it just me, or has anyone ever noticed that the B&O color scheme matches almost perfectly to Central of GA? (Or vice versa, which ever way you wanna look at it):thumb:

    Another nice roll-by, Tom. :thumb: I ordered a couple of those Roundhouse milk cars when they were first released, as undecs, but they still haven't shown up. :cry:


    From the info that I've been able to find, an at-one-time president of the C of G liked the B&O colours so much that he ordered diesels painted the same. Here's a link:

    Central of Georgia Railway Historical Society

    Look under "Color Schemes" - "CG paint colors" if you want to pursue that theory.

    Ya' know, I've revisited this thread a few times just because I enjoy looking at that diesel and excellent weathering. Really great job!
