I'm trying to come up with an "image" for my freelanced road. Below are a couple samples I've done so far. I'm modeling the 1950s, so both steam and diesel will be on my layout. While I haven't completed a full backstory for how/why my road exists, it does have ties to and shares trackage with, the Nickel Plate Road. My layout will probably be able to support 4 locos, at least one of which will be (of course) a 2-8-2. I will letter steam locos in the old style yellow Roman lettering. Diesels will also need some kind of logo or "brand". The first example is obviously taken from the fallen flag Norfolk & Western. The letters have been switched and "RY" for railway has been replaced with "RR". The second example is of my own design. I like it better, but I wonder if it appears to modern for the 1950s.
