Hi, I am having trouble seeing the paint scheme on the TAG route's diesels - what color are they?

TA&G diesels were blue. I know exactly what you are talking about when you say itís hard to tell some times from old photos. I have seen some color shots were they looked pine green and still others were they appeared to be gray blue. I donít know if it is color shift in the original negative/print. It may have something to do with the lighting. Possibly they tried to correct something with Adobe Photo and never got the true color back. At any rate, I have several photos that I think give a good representation of their true color. If you would like an e-mail copy, please get with me off list. Warren
