Baldwin class 8-28D representative of V&T nos. 19 "Truckee," 20 "Tahoe," 23 "Santiago," and 24 "Merrimac." Model is accurate to as-built specification. Textures are accurate to Baldwin Style 1, with the exception that the sand dome wrapper is incorrect(I didn't have a vector for the right lining). Zip file includes .PSDs with layers. Light colors near the bottom are for paint, darker colors near top are for environment/specular map.

    I'm not a trains guy but a good and pretty model is a good and pretty model. I might as well download it to take a loooong look, as the research work and study that I feel are behind this are worthy of respect. Well done and thank you very much :)
