Jace is correct on this point. .Prime Mover Decals is in the process of developing these decals,
though. He will do them in scales other than HO for a small minimum run, 25, I believe, but don't
quote me on that.

Um, Tom, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I am pretty
sure the DL&W
didn't have any USRA 0-8-0's; their only 0-8-0's, as I
recall, were the
homebuilts from 4-6-2's to keep the shop crews employed during the
Depressions. Now the ERIE had USRA-type 0-8-0's...
Sorry to have to deal with the head end of a freight train
rather than the
Jace Kahn, General Manager
Ceres and Canisteo RR Co.

I have a buddy that just purchased a Proto-2000 USRA 0-8-0
switcher that
apparently is a match for the 0-8-0's that the Lackawanna
used. He is
asking if anyone knows who makes accurate DL&W decals for steam
locomotives. He advises that the Champ set lettering for the
tender is
too large and cannot be used.

If anyone has an idea of what would be correct to use,
please advise.
Thanking you all in advance!
