Every little short-line railroad needs a herald, right? Here's one I cobbled together for the Thunder Mesa Line.
The central butte image is from a font set called Big Thunder Dingbats. It was designed by David Occhino and is available as a free download from his site. The lettering was done by me in Adobe Illustrator.
I'll be having some custom decals made in the future, but for now, here's a little Photoshop magic showing how the new herald will look on some Bachmann 18' boxcars.
