2014 Color Calendar

Along with the most important fact of lack of sufficient sales of the color
calendar, the other significant issue with the color calendar is:

Steam sells and Diesels don't.

The limited and diminishing number of unused, quality color steam slides
available forces the color calendar into the later Diesel era for images.
These don't have the appeal of good, sharp steam images and this affects
the saleability of the color calendar. This is why the classic version is
still offered as many more quality images exist of steam in black and white

50 years from now when early images of Norfolk Southern locomotives and
trains are desired for calendars, they will be from color slides or digital
files. Black and white images from negatives wil be rare as the
photographers of today don't use black and white film very often.
