Re: decals for Fox Valley Wagontop

Darn - that was stupid - I should have walked to the shop before answering. I have cars from the initial run - in the early, pre-Kuhler scheme. Sorry about the confusion.

I should have thought of that when I wrote the initial question! Thanks for
asking. I'm working on models in the as-built Kuhler scheme.

What paint scheme are we talking about?

Hi there,

I'm working on a couple of the Fox Valley wagon-top cars - unfortunately
both came lettered with the same car number.

The good news: - the lettering comes off very easily with orange based
pumice hand cleaner used in automotive departments. A small blob of the
stuff placed with a toothpick on a single digit allows one to remove only
part of the car number (or re-weigh info, etc). I place the blob of
cleaner
on the letter or number in question and, about 15 minutes later, sweep
the
digit away with a swish of a paint brush. I run it under the tap, using
the
brush and water to remove any remaining cleaner and fragments of the
letter
and let it air dry.

Now I'm trying to find decals that are of the same style and size as used
by
Fox Valley. As one who hasn't previously modelled any B & O rolling
stock,
I wonder if anyone else has done any re-numbering and can suggest a
suitable
decal for this purpose?
