    Geez... having drawn this slogan now myself (from supplied photos thanks) ... I'm convinced it was drawn by the pointy haired boss on a napkin after a 5 whisky lunch break. It is soooo wrong.

    Very nice, Michelle. Made me happy to see! Do you want photos of FGE cars after the striping came off?

    I'm considering Merging the MEC graphics with the FGE graphics into one font called "MECOLD" since neither flesh out the amount of glyphs I normally create.

I recently found 2 3 bay hoppers still in PC green and the lettering just bleeding thru and it's now 2018 and the PC vanished in 1976.

    When I do make up these cars I try my best to get things correct I found my blank FGE skin so now I can make up the cars I think after they are done and added to the set I will upload the whole thing as a massive file then start on the second set.
    AEX has a ton of these, ex PC cars, now in the salt service. Their days are now numbered, as this is where grain hoppers go to die.

    The Solid Gold lettering always kinda reminded me of a piece of graffiti... But for some reason, I think it looks awesome. Don't ask me why.

    Nice work by the way sir with regards to the logo.

    Can you Add the Solid Cold, Real Cold, and The Chiller to that, please?

    Can you when you have time try to take some pictures of those PC cars, please?

    Already finished the artwork for those... Wrapping up the MECOLD font for upload tonight or tomorrow. Also the Rock Island/IAIS font has been updated to allow creation of the IAIS logo with yellow lettering but red outline. (which it could not do before)
