The again, maybe it's the 4th of July and Old Glory would be appropriate (I'm actually kind of leaning toward this option because the colors would look great).


Don't get too carried away with the flags like I did for 4th of July in the Yukon.

Ah, seeing that E ticket does bring back some fond memories of my first trip to Disneyland. Those were the days!

Great picture. While it wasn't universal, there certainly are enough pictures of locomotives with special touches from antlers and polished brass to special paint. Outside of pooled power and cabooses, I suspect crews wanted to improve "their" cars.

My layout is set in August 1920--a presidential election year, the start of prohibition and woman got to vote. Lots of potential for flags and bunting.

As if you didn't have my attention already, Dave, now you come up with this!

I hope you plan on showing us how you did it, 'cause I've got some coaches, a couple of combines (one I want to put a cupola on), and even an observation car I want to do that to, and 19' is the perfect size ... ...! Bring on another tutorial ... ...!

CHEERS!

Well... this one's an experiment. If it works out, I'll do a couple more, Just hit a bit of a roadblock though. I cut down the frame and now it's too short for the trucks!

Looking for alternatives.
