I would strongly suggest, with the best possible intentions, that you ditch
the Champ set and use the accurate Monon decals from Model Railroad Supply.

Dear Tim,

Many thanks for the effort to clarify, as I know this gets confusing.

What happened is that I saw a box car photo on the O-Scale Protocraft site
with a Monon Hoosier Line slogan. I said I had a Champ Decal set with that
same slogan and wondered where I could get that particular car.

Richard Hendrickson chimed in to say that the Champ decal was made for
another car entirely, one with a 10'0" inside height, numbered in the 9000
series. The decal does, in fact, call for a 10 IH car, so I am currently
looking for a Red Caboose 1937 AAR 10' IH car with 4/5 ends and w-corner

Sorry for the confusion, and I much appreciate your jumping in with your

Best wishes,
