    The next set of cars are ones that I am currently working on. They all need to be weathered.

    The first three are Athearn/Bev-Bel gondolas:

    As always, Tom, an enjoyable railfanning experience. I like the looks of those F-units too.

    Fine job, Tom. Once again, mile post 46 proves itself to be a great railfanning spot. I always seem to see elements from my favorite roads there. I particulary appreciate the very convincing rust effects Tom seems to have nailed down. Stuart.

    I am extremely impressed by the clarity, focus, and richness of the colors. Very impressive photography, and of course very impressive subjects. Well done!
