As previous viewers have probably noticed, it's been a long time since I updated this homepage text (and I actually forgot how).
The SP & PFE lettering book is still for sale - you can buy it here: https://sphts.myshopify.com/products/southern-pacific-freight-car-painting-and-lettering-guide

July 2018 - Have been doing several UP decal artwork projects recently, and I have scanned some of my UP PL&N drawings. They are in the UP Freight Car Painting & Lettering folder, along with photos of the cars to show how they looked. Also am in the process of scanning the entire book of post-WP & MP merger UP Freight Car Diagrams.

2018 - Have added some more Folders to the bottom of this page, where I will be posting photos from various model and Historical Society meets I have attended.

2018 - Still looking for info as to why UP put 36" Red Dots on the doors of boxcars in the late 1960s. Much of what I know is in a 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

2018 - 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.

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