After almost a year of mostly ignoring my SmugMug site while I worked on a PFE painting & lettering book for the SPH&TS, it's time to start uploading new info here, since the book has gone to the printer.
The SP & PFE lettering book is now for sale - you can buy it here: https://sphts.myshopify.com/products/southern-pacific-freight-car-painting-and-lettering-guide

April 2017 - Have added some more galleries to "Train Photos" folder and added a clinic to UP Freight lettering folder.

March 2017 - The subject of UP's boxcars with large Red Dots on the doors has again gotten some interest, so I have put much of what I know in a new gallery in the UP Freight Car Painting & Lettering folder. If you have any ideas about the reason for those Red Dots, please contact me at: Dick -dot- Harley4UP -at- verizon -dot- net

January 2017 - It's a new year, and I have scanned a bunch of slides I took back in the 1970s and '80s. Will be uploading them as I get the chance. See them in various "Train Photos" folders.

November 2016 - Started scanning PFE Equipment Diagram books. Have completed the 1951 and 1967 books. See the "PFE Freight Car Data" folder.

This site will probably always be under construction. Keep checking back for more detail train photos, drawings, diagrams, model photos and other data. Enjoy.
