    Default Canadian Pacific Passenger cars

    Does anybody know if the kits by Geoff Gooderham come with decals and, are there any decals available individually for CP passenger cars ?

    Thanks for any input.

    The two CPR 2200 coaches I purchased back in 2012 did not come with decals. The instructions recommend using decals from "Black Cat Publishing" (whoever that is).

    I used my cars for a DM&E excursion train so I never had any reason to track down any CPR decals myself.

    Black cat is out of Winnipeg and make excellent decals for most Canadian passenger equipment, even NAR passenger cars. Very thin decal film! Jim in Minnesota.

    The Gooderham kit cars are listed here - http://www.central-hobbies.com/products/ggood.html

    They don't have pictures for all of them, but thanks to the late Mike McGrattan I do - http://www.spookshow.net/passenger/goodcpr.html

    In answer for paint...I'm trying to get Rapido's proto-paint to airbrush nicely, but it's not cooperating. It's very glossy (which is great for varnish that CP's taken pride in) and I like the colour, but I can't seem to get it to spray well. I'm going to try Tru-Color as well. I'll probably be posting a thread when I manage it.
