#5 New overhead train graphics

Jason Owen

I've modified some of the graphics for the overhead
(main map) view of train engines & cars. I'm sure a
graphic artist could do better, but for the moment they
should be less place-holder-y.

A brief description:
Coffee: brown in the middle, yellow stripes on the
sides (but not ends)
Export goods: yellow in the middle, brown edges of
varying width
Manufactured goods: opposite of export goods
Grasshopper & Norris: black, with a triangle in front
Livestock: yellow, with a thin brown line all the way
Oil: black, rounded ends
Petroleum: red/pinkish (from the excellent side-view),
rounded ends
Wood: light brown, with four black stripes across

I liked the food, grain, mail, passengers, and sugar
just the way they were.

    I tried them last night.

    Two suggestions.

    (1) Make the two engines distinguishable - e.g. the
    make the grasshopper shorter.

    (2) I found the Export Goods and Mfg. Goods a little
    confusing. The side on Export Goods is dark red and brown
    but the overhead view is dark red and yellow; The side on
    Mfg. Goods is yellow and brown but the overhead view is
    yellow and dark red.

    Other than that, I think they are a clear improvement. They
    make the wagons distinguishable.

    I have added the files to CVS after making a few colour
    changes. I you want to make any additional changes, please
    post the files here and I'll be happy to look at them.
