The white backing should make the lighter colors show up better but that requires a background color otherwise I would go crazy trying to cut out individual letters or something ridiculous like that. I have spent a lot of time trying to get a least close to the colors of the freight and passenger cars and I'll let the weathering process blend them together. I did a test run on regular paper and I think the colors are pretty close. I also picked up on a couple of errors laying out the first two sheets, like I left off the RY off the lettering for the passenger cars and I was over optimistic when I thought I could get the car numbers on the same sheet. No problem I have plenty of sheets to work with. I think I'm on the right track though.
|The result of a weekend or so of work|
|Not really going to be able to fit the numbers on this sheet after all|
|I'm quite pleased with the C&N Logo though.|
