Thanks for all the help. I think all my phone pics are too big. Probably gonna have to load them on the computer and tweak them all a bit. My brain hurts already!

If you don't have any fancy graphics applications like Photoshop, you can resize photos with a standard Windows app called "Paint". Just open the graphic, hit the resize button, click on Pixels and enter the width you would like (try 1024). Once you hit save, the image will be resized.

Thanks for the tips, I'll try to remember this post the next time I have a photo of my own to post. (Which actually isn't very often, I come from the David P. Morgan school of railroad photography, in that I am far more interested in railroads than in photography).

Did DPM ever take a railroad photograph? I don't ever recall seeing one published, by maybe he took some for his personal use.

I seem to recall some terrible Instamatic-type photos he took, which unfortunately is what my photos were in the 70s too.

Trainguy we have an operational Plymouth at our museum in Wichita, Ks it has a v-8 LeRoi which is a cousin of the six in yours. If you would contact me with your email address and phone number I think I can be of some help to you on these engines.
