These are car-end decals, set #WSM-57. Decals with the distinctive New York Central Budd car safety striping, in black, white, and red, in S-scale are available from Bill Mosteller, Great Decals!, 3306 Parkside Terrace, Fairfax, VA 22031. The sets cost $17.49, and include NYC road names and numbers. Each set does one Rail Diesel Car. PayPal accepted. Dealer's inquires welcome. The New York Central's Budd RDCs were delivered without the distinctive safety striping. After car M-498 was destroyed in a grade crossing accident in 1960, the railroad applied the zebra end striping to improve the cars' visibility. Additionally, Penn Central applied these stripes to post-merger New Haven Budd cars. This decal is in memory of Walt Danylak of Syracuse, NY.
Bill Mosteller, owner of Great Decals!, announces decals for Erie diesel hood units and switchers from the 1945 through 1969 period. The part number is #64-876 for the S-scale version. The decals are $6.95 each, plus $2.00 shipping. Each set provides road names, road numbers in yellow and white and differing fonts, yellow stripes, and heralds, and two styles of nose heralds (short and long). The artwork is Microscale's #876, re-sized for S-scale and produced by them for the late Douglas Miller. Click to send an e-mail.
Ed Sauers is considering having a set of B&O decals produced for early-generation road switchers (GP7, GP9, SD7, SD9, and F-M and Baldwin engines). The set would contain the "Baltimore and Ohio" text, plus the striping for the hood and frame, class data, and any numbers required. Ed would attempt to keep the pricing as low as possible.
