What I do, I do for my personal enjoyment also but enjoy packaging and sharing them off the main archive sites too. Seeing my re-skins in other's screenshots is the ultimate compliment.
There are only a few existing pieces of rolling stock which fit this period and so the reskinning work of others can't help but look similar in overall appearance to what I'm doing and that's expected and no problem whatsoever. It's the little things I most enjoy i.e., adding molding to the lower edge of the cars.
So post away, my friend. The more the merrier. If what I do inspires others to paint too, I am happy.

Thanks Mike. Your cars are certainly very well done and I may download them myself. I will at the very least get your fine looking cabeeses!

Fictionals are fun!
Look how much fun the Canton boys are having!
Me thinks this is a big tent with room for everyone.

Tim, as credited in my ReadMe, these are John Fowlis cars. Several people have re-skinned them but the core cars are John's.
John is a prolific modeler. A search on his name, will find several re-skins of these coaches—among many other things. If you'd rather search with a filename, try dr_c1.zip which is the one I used to fetch John's cars.
The ReadMe included with dr_c1.zip credits John for the cars but says little else relative to John. The default SL&NA is exclusively John's rolling stock anyhow (including the loco), so it seemed logical to stick with that program.

As a huge steam fan I am ashamed that I did not think of that. As much stuff as I have of his on disks scattered everywhere.
Anyway, Mike, thanks for loosening my brain a little there. If I can ever get on TS again to download the files I will. But, like I said, these may and probably will never see an upload site so it probably is a moot point anyway. I will run them from time to time just for something different to do on my own computer. Probably where they belong anyway.
By the way, got your cabeese and have already run it and love the lantern. Really looks nice. Thanks for that.
