Fantasy Locos

John Longhurst’s latest post featured a few photos from Jeff King’s Milwaukee Road Train Shop site, showing the fantasy locos (locomotives) he paints.

Jeff does model painting as a job, and he does it well. The photos that John linked to are really special, as they are “fantasy” paint schemes that do not exist in real life. For example:

Wouldn’t that be great to see at the head of a set of Saskatchewan hoppers?

How about a John Deere loco?

I really like the idea of freelanced railroads and these fit right in.
