No. I'm not tech savvy.
Sometimes, when I want depth, I'll stop down the aperture, but then I have to play with the lighting, which I usually forget to do.
Maybe I'm missing out on better photos, but for the time being I'm satisfied with what I've got.
Since I've stepped into the 2K era for some of my diesel roster, I've acquired some NS and CSX GEVo's and SD70's.
However, I've neglected BNSF, which has a serious presence in Missouri, along with the ghosts of Frisco and Cotton Belt.
Our 'train pimp' has them for $198, (with sound) which beats any of the online prices I'm seeing. MSRP is $224.
No photos yet, until I do a successful test-run, and actually make the purchase.

The Genesis A-B set shown is rendered in rare Gothic lettering... of which I'm a huge fan.
Diesels and rolling stock were both adorned with this font for a brief period in the 1950's before (to my dismay) being rejected.
I personally much prefer the original SP Roman and this Gothic lettering over the 'Speed' Lettering motif.
The Gothic lettering appeared on Cotton Belt and T&NO equipment as well.
Con-Cor also produced this car.
Any other view wouldn't be any more satisfying.
Sadly, most of the good manufacturers didn't offer the Sunset Limited cars in this short-lived silver & red version, which was rapidly changed to the Golden State scheme... Yeck.
Rapido's domed Budd Car is superb, but (a.f.a.i.k.) not offered in SP paint.
Thanks LateStarter and Stumpy. I model quite a few different road names but all in the 1950's - mid 1960's. That GE ET44AC is an absolute beauty and I'll post a picture of mine when I get it this Christmas. It'll only run solo on my layout and I will think of you guys when it does.
