I was re-processing a previously posted photo of NHRR 3025 and I went a little farther than I normally do.
Here is the original conversion to B&W with minor toning:

Here is the latest version, Silver FX conversion with some extra work, erased the B&W layer over the number board and yellow safety handles allowing the color to come thru.

For those willing to take a minute, which do you like better and why?

I really like the Silver FX conversion. The color adds a great deal to the photo and the rendering of the black gives the 3025 a mysterious look. Great photo. I really like the 3025, they did a great job with the rebuild.

Thanks Rick and Dennis. Dennis, I agree, I didn't realize how good the #3025 looks until last weekend when I went to NJ and saw the other SY (the one that Essex had originally). I really don't like the original cab, something about it looks odd, maybe not period correct for US Steam. The "J-1a" look is much better, IMHO.
