Railroads of Montana
Starting back in 1998 while living in Central Montana I came across the idea to print a calendar of the railroads of Montana. Having lived in many different parts of the state since the 1980's and after crisscrossing the state many times in travels, I felt had enough interesting images to fill the pages of a yearly calendar. Since so many interesting transportation related events have helped shape Montana's railroad history, I decided to insert important Montana transportation "it-happened-on-this-date" historical dates and logos / insignias of the various railroad related companies.
Since four-color printing costs became so prohibitive causing me to suspend "hardcover" calendars and with the increased coverage of broadband Internet connections that have become more widely available - making it possible to supply larger files for folks to download...no more waiting for hours as a large files are downloaded. I decided to present the Railroads of Montana calendars for on this website free, so all could enjoy the information and images of the railroads of Montana.
The Railroads of Montana calendars are available as Adobe® Reader .pdf files in a compressed "Zip" file. It will be a fairly large file [between 7 & 10 megs], so even with a broadband/cable connection, it may take awhile to download. I will make an announcement on some of the railroad discussion groups when the each new yearly calendar ready to download.
The files will come out to 24-pages for the entire year. Each month has one 8 1/2" x 11" landscape format calendar image and one 8 1/2" x 11" calendar text page. I used the exact same calendar format and fonts as the original, so if you print out the photo section of the calendar on "Photo" paper and the calendar portion on high-quality paper - that way you should have a fairly good representation of the original calendar.
I suppose printing and color perception will be subject to your monitor, printer and paper. These are variables that cannot be predicted, since it would be impossible to anticipate every possible configuration of monitor, printer and paper. That being said, I have tried to set the colors, brightness, contrast and saturation to a "neutral" balance so that everyone should be able to enjoy the publication on just about any computer configuration
