I need reweigh lettering for more than 100 railroads. For another,
not all railroads used the same size lettering, or the same style
of lettering. It's true that I could make up some lettering for
SP, say, but lately my problem has been C&NW, WP, AT&SF, B&O, SAL,

reweigh decals which have a wonderful variety of station symbols
and lettering styles for 64 railroads by my count. But a dearth of

silver, and black. Champ's are all white. Sunshine offered only one
sheet with black decals for 15 roads, and seven sheets with white
lettering for 63 roads, plus a PFE sheet.
I agree custom sets can help, but I'd need a LOT of different custom
