Nice logo, Rick! I see you even have the train numbers as odd or even, depending on direction and which way the train points. Very nice!

Mike: That's it in a nutshell....although credit for the markers goes entirely to Joe (dnhman). Reversing the labels and painting the arrow makes it a lot more intuitive.

Bill: funny you say that; plans are afoot to purchase some decal paper and printing some HTRR decals for the locos possibly some gons, and the buildings, although it would be unlikely for a steel firm to have a fleet of cars in interchange service. At the moment I'm contemplating yellow gons (heavily weathered of course) with the oval logo and black reporting marks. Unfortunately, at freight car size, "Harrisburg Steel Corporation" is too small to be read. More pondering to follow.....

Looking good Rick (and Joe). About time them paying patrons got a roof over their heads.

Looks real good Rick. Just because there's a station there doesn't mean we still won't ask where that station is,

Yeah, what's new? Any progress on those decals? I understand a friend of your put a lot of effort into making up some proofs for you.

THAT qualifies for understatement of the year: not counting tweaks to the original logo I posted earlier, we're now up to 25 different lettering variations of a 40 ft gondola.....

I think they refer to this as "...an embarrassment of riches".

Great addition. Congratulations Grandpa and Grandma. He already has that Superintendent 'look' that he will give the employees.
