Re: RI 264000 lettering

Here are a couple of examples of the plain block lettering that replaced the RR Roman versions on cars repainted, although a lot of cars probably didn't ever get this scheme.  The 40xxx series were renumbered for hide service.

The decals in my kit appear to be for earlier times, perhaps the 'as built' version.  I, and perhaps Ron, would like a source for the the late 1950s Rock Island lettering style.

What is wrong with the decals that come with the kit?
