    On3 Colorado & Southern 2-6-0 #21

    This is actually my first brass engine... from 1963! It's On3 and I paid $80.00 for it. It wasn't that great of a model- wrong cab and a few other things... but I love her! I painted & weathered her many moons ago. Photo is shot with a Sony 3.2Mp digital. Composited on 3 layers- clouds(courtesy JBBVRy), layout and loco. I "turned on" the headlight in Photoshop 6.0, as well as added smoke.
