Re: blog post on vehicle license plates

Great stuff Tony. In Iowa the plates use to be marked with number assigned
to each county, set to the left of the plate. In the late steam era the
plates change every year, color of plate or color of lettering. So if you
are modeling a line in Iowa, know the county where you tracks run, as the
majority of plates will have that county number on the left side, further
giving a geographic reference.
