    Tie plates: around the turn of the (last) century, as wood and labor prices rose and iron prices fell. Probably sooner in areas that used soft wood ties, and later on routes using hard wood.
    Dirty locomotives: About the 1880s, the popular aesthetic trended toward dark colors. Locomotives started to be painted black or very dark green; passenger cars started getting painted dark colors as well. These dark colors tended to hide coal soot better, and coupled with rising labor costs, things weren't kept as pristine as before. I can't say if they got to the filthy condition popularly shown, however...
    Keep in mind, though, these are broad generalizations and specific cases may or may not align with them.
    Hey Pencil, what's that 5th freight car (3rd boxcar, 5th car in the train)? It looks kinda cool!

    I make more smoke and steam when I make a pot of tea (never mind the checkers players, they probably aren't rail fans). Bob Cass would be complaining, as he had several loco's with tremendous "Twinkles" smoke effects ... he was a great fan of voraciously smoking loco's

    locomotives such as this mountain was a source of pride for any railroad, if any engines was not cleaned after a day's work, it speaks absolute volumes about the appearance of the railroad company should a railroad inspector inspect to check to see if things are tidy and in order.

    Cascade, you might want to watch what you say. After all, karma is nasty and we all know your odometers getting a little high on the mileage, if you know what I'm saying...

    Might I suggest we all take a few steps back before the mods do have to get involved?

    I think trainboi1's new locomotives look fine with pencil42's TANE rolling stock.
