October 2018 - The past summer was mostly consumed by medical issues. Have recently posted photos from model meets I have been to this year. Still need to add captions to most of them. I'm slowly working on it. See the "Model RR Shows & Meets" folder.

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
