    Default What's written on your box car?

    I just got an undecorated box car and I want to letter it in my own colors. The big "B" will be easy but the smaller letters indicating weight capacity,etc might prove more difficult. Anybody know of a decal company that might offer something along those lines?

    Did you check Microscale. They have all sorts of decals. They should have something along the lines of what you’re looking for. The other option is going custom.

    If it's a good idea, go ahead and do it. It is much easier to apologize than it is to get permission.

    @Albey25

    You could also go with Tichy Trains decals, but Moose finds their fonts to be a bit too bold and therefore not as good as the MicroScale decals.
