Steam Decals

Whew!  I thought I was asking a relatively simple question.  Let me rephrase it 
thus:  do we have the lettering diagrams and stenciling arrangements for the 
various classes of locomotives and tenders.  A quick search of the resource 
guide turns up a lettering diagram for Class W's but by the date I'm guessing 
it's not what I'm looking for.

I know there have been several decal sets for N&W steam and everybody always 
complains about something.  The ShellScale decals for J's are among the best 
I've seen.  I think that is in part because they aren't trying to be everything 
to everybody.  The MicroScale set is probably perfect for one class of tender, 
but I can't think of which one it is off the top of my head.  A new and I think 
more useful decal set would have the lettering spaced to fit different 
size/classes of tenders.  I'm guessing that one decal sheet would hold a pair or 
two of all of the lettering size/spacing variations making it a very marketable 

Unfortunately I don't think we have drawings of what we want.  Hopefully someone 
from the Archive can prove me wrong and make this project easier.

Okay next round of comments?
