I wonder if somthing similar can be said of decals for modern RR's versus decals of railroads in the pre-merger (late 1960's) era. There may be a skew towards the older stuff in general.

Perhaps the decals of older railroads have been made over the years and are still available through MicroScale and others. It seems that decals coming out for newer railroads, while more timely than before are fewer in overall releases per RR.

Maybe there is a bias against NS but I don't see why. The engines are black and the NS logo is no different (better or worse) than most other modern railroads. UP may be the exception since they have not changed their color and decal schemes. Not bashing NS. It would be good RR to model especially in Indiana.

I didn't know anything about those two locations I'll have to try and find some pictures of them. I'm still in the planning stages on my extension,so I've still have time to maybe fit one or both in.

Thanks for the track diagram. I think I should be able to work it in somewhere.
