I just bought two of the sets Ben Hom referred me to on eBay, but if that doesn’t do it all, I’ll be back to you. Thanks.

Champ HN-123 has black lettering including the "X" for mofw equipment.
Send me your address and I'll mail you the set.

Of course I am if you look at it that way. What I was looking for and have received is a couple or useful responses from people with some direct knowledge of D&RGW equipment who contacted me off list, which is why I gave my email address in the first email.
Since you seem to really want to know. I am looking to more-or-less accurately decal some troop sleepers in work train service. The decal sheet my friend gave me, Microscale 87-73 “D&RGW Narrow Gauge Freight Cars,” does not include much black lettering and I am not convinced the “Rio Grande” speed lettering is the correct size. I suspect there are better choices. I want to letter it as accurately as I can, though the owner is very much satisfied with a “three-foot rule” result. It’s >>ME<< being picky, not the owner.
"I need some help finding the appropriate decals for a car I’m doing for a friend. I am not a D&RGW modeler.
I would appreciate assistance in finding the best decals for the job."
You're casting a pretty wide net. What specifically are you trying to letter?
