The problem with photographs of other members ballasting is they are not all taken under the same conditions, so what appears in the photograph may not represent the true shades.

I posted a few photographs of some of my Union Pacific stock showing how the colour can vary when taken in different lighting conditions.

True, but even bad photos are better than nothing.

The obvious answer to this is "because neither you or anyone else has started such a thread" ;)

You could try asking in the relevant section (Track, Points & Underlay) and see how many replies you get, or you could try looking through the layout threads where a lot of people have probably already stated what they used, or if they haven't you could ask them if you like the look of a particular picture :)
