An ongoing description of the trials and tribulations of building a model railroad. I am not one to worry too much about 100% accuracy. If it looks right then it probably is right for me.

Home made decals
I have been trying to find a way to get my railroad name onto my locos. I can't really justify £65 for a set of pro-decals as I will get sheets of stuff. I tried ink jet printing onto clear decal sheet but the colours were not strong enough when put onto my black locos.
Yesterday, I found a sheet of white laser decal paper so I have drawn up a sheet of the logo and some numbers. What I did was put a black box onto the page with a white design or letter. The black stands out a little but once I have put some matt varnish on and then done some weathering, I think that it will all blend in. Anyway, here are the results.
