    Here is a quick&dirty repaint of an Kadee ex-Central of Georgia (just for fun). :eek: :eek:

    I tried to repaint the big oval with The Gauge logo, but here is 1AM and I'm a bit tired... :eek:

    (And now, c'mon, kill me! :rolleyes: )

    How a bout sky blue pink?? The color for all occasions??

    Just kidding.

    I could go with a medium blue like the Boston&Maine or the Bangoor&Aroostook, but the light blue is out of the question. The-Gauge background is more of a medium than a light blue any ways.

    I just don't want to be running this car on the rails and have someone think thats its the RI's bankruptcy blue. I do have a box of the RI in blue and wouldn't mind at all to bash one.

    I don't know if a poll would help, can we have have a poll on weather we want to make it one color scheme or a freelanced model of what ever we want?? Then if the freelanced wins the people who voted on one color scheme can do it in the blue they want. Or do we have a poll on what color for which era???

    I didn't mean to open up a big can of worms on you Mikey. :( :(

    Well, I guess when One "Choice" greatly overcomes the other 2 or 3. I guess we could give it another week, Lets say the 19th. I'll post "Official" results sometime on the 20th.. ok????

    That looks really good Shamus. If you made a print of the logo and stuck it on the car does that make it a true "Billboard Reefer"? :D

    PS, I'm always drooling over your structures!:eek:

    Oh by the way y'all, The Gauge blue is close as can be to "Wedgewood Blue" and is in fact quite pleasant.

    I'm usually into mostly modern stuff but when I saw Steve and Errol's boxcars I had to go with something a bit aged... Mine is a rusty old steel sided affair, hauled behind the old South Fork 3200 "Whatsit," being brought out of the desert near Eagle Mountain (or what I call the big lump on my layout that may never get finished...):p

    Now I'm "cornfused" again!:confused: :eek: :D

    Is this supposed to be a car made with "photo magic" or are we to actually bash/letter an actual car???

    Hey Vic,
    It's supposed to be real, I'm tinkin'. The polls prefer blue wit black lettering, but look at 88's photo in the 'Photography' forum, it's really nice.:D
    Anyway, it's your railroad, like they say...

    Exactly. Do it however you want as far as color and font goes. I guess I was a little too anal when it came to the looks of the cars. I guess we could do general guidelines, but what the hey, it is not like the Railroad Police are gonna come and kick your door down and haul you away if you do it however you want. Of course, they will come and kick the door down if you do any of the NSR's cars.... ;) :D :p
