Lube markings practices?

Tony Thompson

      For those not sure what might be feasible for repack and brake service stencils, with the fine Sunshine sets not available, here is what Richard Hendrickson used to do, back in the day. He used the smallest lettering from N scale data sets, usually upside down just to make sure it wasn't readable. As he observed, the main thing is that there is some relatively fresh lettering on a paint patch, over by the right bolster and on the brake reservoir, not that it necessarily say the right thing. So much of modeling is SUGGESTING what is there, rather than slavishing producing the exact, correct item.
