Sorry folks I needed to test my photo upload skills with my new Flickr account. At least it's N scale.

interesting. I used to ride those on the Brunswick line. They were painted in B&O and the old MDOT scheme. Did any of them really make it into this scheme?

Well if he has some 'splain' to do . Where did he go ? Why did he go ? Was it painful ? Was there life there ? How was the food ? Girls ? Did he go on a MX bike ?

I used to see those RDCs smoke up a storm departing St.Denis years ago.
I don't remember seeing them in that scheme though.
But that RDC sure looks shweet in the MARC paint.

Try going to a cloth store and getting a piece of medium gray fabric for a backgound. Your photos will come out much better overall. See, the meter in cameras try to turn the world a medium grey(18% for you techies out there). So a white background tend to make the model come out a bit dark. Try it, you'll see the difference. ;D By the way, what you've done isn't half bad.. I'm not knocking it, just trying to help you with your photos.(I've been in the photo business about 40 years now)

Hey folks, thanks for the welcome back. After some browsing it looks like the skill level of some people has gone up quite a bit. I wonder if I can still hang?  ;D

Here is a pic of one of the prototypes.




The pics of my work are old and rushed, btw, just something to have as a record. I think I heard the ice cream truck coming or something that day...

Thanks BD!

I stopped riding MDOT/Marc back in the early 90s.

resumed again early this century.
