Belles in Winter

This is about as "wintery" as SE Texas will look...color courtesy of KCS.
Now that the Belles are commonplace, do you find yourself wishing for leading "grey mares" or "ghosts"?
mo: nope. Ghosts are a nice treat since they are really, really rare, but photographically they are almost as pitiful as those 18% grey units.....the ancient and incredibly hideous TFM blues aren't really missed, but I'm glad I got them when I could if only for posterity. The belle is a real treat to photograph.
