Re: PRR X31A facts you want to know
Brother also makes one. The tape is available in 6, 9, 12, 18 and 24 mm widths. Another adaptive use for the product I use to label the drawers containing the layout supplies like turnouts, bridge kits, and trucks.

"Can you give us more information on this product? I am not sure what you are describing."
Here's an example - Dymo sells a similar product for their label makers:
This isn't the old thick embossed label stock for the manual hand-held label makers - this is a peel-and-stick printable tape. It works nicely - here's a Walthers (ex-Train Miniature) Class X29 boxcar that has patch panels made from this material. It was a bit difficult getting it over the large rivets of the old model, but I do like the effect more than decals (which tend to disappear under the paint) and Bare-Metal Foil (which I find to be too subtle).
