- Hello Bill,
Thank you for your comment on Santa Fe blue bonnet
about a month ago. Here is a good news from me.
I purchased books "The Santa Fe Diesels". In vol. 1,
there are several color photographs of B-units in
that paint scheme. It seems to me that Santa Fe numbered
their B-units with postfix "A" (326A for example)
while A-units with no postfix (338 for example).
Or for A-B-B-A set, they numbered with postfix
nnnL-nnnA-nnnB-nnnC respectively. (L for lead unit)
Now we can say that Marklin's are rather prototypical.
One difference I noticed that Marklin's B-unit does not
have a road name "SANTA FE" on their sides.
- Hello Cyrus,
Very nice and interesting work.
I'm attracted by her driver wheel, tender and
well balanced proportion.
In addition, I'd like to know how you made
the package photography.
(I counld not see those pictures on April 1/2
because of onelist's maintainance.)

All I did was scan in real box art and I took a picture of the
train. Using Photoshop, I reworked the box art,(I changed the
company name to MarkLum to avoid any trademark issues as well as give
the careful observer a clue that this was a fake. I also put April
Fools text in the reflections that fall on the table top) then I
printed it out to glossy card stock on an inkjet printer.
