Brian,
Just checked _www.alphabetroute.com_ (http://www.alphabetroute.com)
and there is no answer under the P&WV section.

I have a future project to create a P&WV boxcar from a Proto kit. while
researching the options I am coming up thin on P&WV decals. Ted has a set
in
his kit and Champ still lists the set below. does anyone have the set and
can tell me what is included, what size herald, and does it include the
symbol of service slogan?

herald, set will letter 2 models. Order HN-81 for HO Scale

This set contains only the reporting marks, numbers, lines, and
spelled-out name in 7" lettering, end reporting marks and numbers in
4" lettering, and 30" diameter round P&WV heralds. The symbol of
service logos are not included.

Brian,



I have Champ HN-81.



It includes the road name, various size reporting marks and end reporting marks, numbers for sides and ends.  It does contain the round herald, whicm mesures out to 30 scale inches.  It also contains the "symbol of Service" slogan, but it is "stacked" symbol of over Service, rather than angles as on Ted's set.  The size of the slogan is larger than on Ted's set as well.



The set contains enough to letter two cars.



Hope this helps.

List,

Jim is correct in regard to Champ set HN81 Pittsburgh & West Virgina. When the Champ "Final End of An Era" catalog was issued several years ago, this set was in the process of being revised. When I reordered decals last Spring, the revised sets were what arrived in the order.

Brian;

Having done cars with Champ, Walthers, and Jack Consoli's decals, I heartily
recommend the latter. I am finishing up a PS-1 using Jack's decals, and they
are really sharp and accurate.

BTW, if you are considering doing the 1500 series boxes, recommend you get
the Mainline Modeler issue that has Bob Hundman's article on these ex-NKP
cars, the Paul Dunn photo of that car, plus a good Viking roof.

I look forward to seeing your model!

Elden Gatwood
