Herb-if you think those paint jobs are "Disneyesque", then you need to look at some "south of the border" paint jobs on working locos. I have this book about US locos used around the world and in the "far east" there are Shay locos painted up red, blue, maroon, orange, and yellow...and that's on ONE loco! Of course that's a bit too much for me but I do have a "British racing green" 4-4-0 with gold striping & lettering-it is used by the Gila Tramway to haul tourists to the cliff dwellings. And Shay #1 has a blue boiler. I just can't help it!         Woodie
