Here you go, hot off the computer.
Looks great. I really like the locomotives.
Thanks for the timely effort. Just for fun, what was the original year (your secret is safe with us )?
Thanks Again Keith!!
Gots mine printed and placed in several locations
The original is a 1971 Wall Calendar. I wish I could get anyone that has mint condition calendars to have them scanned as tiff files at Fedex Office, Office Depot or Office Max and pass along the digital files. I could make better calendars include those that include steam or the original black & yellow diesel scheme.
This is cool, Keith. Thanks for putting it together.
FYI, over Thanksgiving, I picked up a 1972 wall calendar (the large, poster-sized on cardboard) in perfect condition. Let me know if you want to scan it.
Also FYI, the antique mall where I found it had about 10 other calendars - priced around $10 each. There were a few other railroad items, too ... which surprised me. Most of that stuff is picked over and only shows up on eBay these days.
This was the Flying Moose Antique Mall, right by Mid Continent Airport, 9223 W Kellogg Dr., Wichita, KS 67209 - (316) 721-6667 9223 W Kellogg Dr., Wichita, KS 67209 (316) 721-6667.
Thank you Keith!
So can anyone tell us why March, 31 May, 5 August, 25 and September, 25 are red letter days?
The months had been juggled on the image and the red dates did not bear any specific meaning other than December 25 and November 21. I did not pay attention to the fact that dates other than Sundays were red.
The 2014 Frisco Calendar has been updated to eliminate the odd red dates.
Thank you for doing this Keith! There's a spot on my home-office wall for this baby.
Keith or Others:
How do I reduce this to print on letter size paper?
I just conducted an experiment using print preview in "Paint" in Windows 7. I did not print anything, but set up the page for portrait and the preview shows it fits a letter sheet with 0.50 - 0.75 inch margins on the top and sides and 0.75 inches on the bottom. The same thing may work in XP.
Reducing the resolution in an image processing program (Photoshop, etc.) to get just the right size would also work.
Worked like a charm! Thanks!
