Image 1997, 1999 by Joshua Moldover, with modifications by Michael Hauptmann.

Painted by Pete Forthbridge.

Painter's Note: I noticed someone had written in asking about weathering locomotives. Here is my attempt at weathering. Instead of simply spraying the loco with the spray tool, I weathered the locomotive's colors in the palate then reapplied them in layers. It's slow, but with some luck the effect should work well. An interesting note; changing the hues and shades of the locos colors in the palate can also be used to give a paint job the shiny "new" look.
