I like the color. The caboose blends in with the background on the others. Got any locomotive shots? Never mind I just saw the shots of the 488!

The black engine looked great in b&w or sepia, it removed the distracting greenery. The red caboose needs colour, it maintains its character through its colour.

The white rails are too bright though. Give them a few years and they will look more like I remember.

Hi Dawg, not to worry a few trips worth of coal soot and they will look good.

I prefer the color one, too, if it is not out of place in a series of monochromes. The shadowed end of the caboosein the monochromes (especially the b/w) loses too much contrast against the foliage - the color contrast is needed. Besides, cabooses are supposed to be red! The new paint on the side is too shiny, but unless you could tone it down a bit, there is nothing you can do about itexcept wait a few years for it to age! Is the color true? Unless it is my monitor, it looks too bright. Ican't recall ever seeingone in paint that bright - they always had that duller weathered look, but I would assume they were able to use an authentic color.

That railroad restoration looks like a fun project, and a historically significant one. Good of you to document it. If you ever get the opportunity on future car restorations, "before"as well as"after" pictures would be valuable for the documentation if noone else is doing it.
The volunteer group has asked me if next year if I would take some before shots and some while they are working on it and then when finished.
