    I'm working on the plan for my New Southern Railroad and I need some help picking which paint scheme works best. Here are the four I've come up with so far. The colors for the NSR are TEAL and BLACK. Pick one, or suggest one of your own! I appreciate your suggestions/comments.

    I voted for #4 as I felt it looked the most prototypical. However IMHO it would look more proto with the "flag" removed. Love the color sceme. :)

    Right! That does look more proto, especially for 40's/50's and on up to today. Also the blue "flag" kinda clashes with the teal paint. Just my opinion, please don't take me too serious. It's your R.R. go with what makes you happy.
