Thanks for the welcome, and for the information. Information on how many sets of the "ampersand" in each set is still welcome, although worst case is I spend $10 instead of $3.50 to ensure coverage!

Welcome to the list.

The 260-5 is the set you want. It does have
the roadname with the ampersand as well as "and". I don't have a set that
is unopened, so I can't recall just how many cabooses one set will decal;
however, the set does have enough material to decal more than one

Hope this helps.

I'm new to this list, so first of all, Hello!

The impetus for joining is sourcing decals for the AMB caboose that I've recently finished. I purchased the Microscale set, but would prefer the Norfolk *&* Western herald as opposed to Norfolk *And* Western, such as in the Champ set pictured in the link below:

So the questions are:
- Does the 260-5 decal set that is being sold in the NWHS commissary have the "&" between Norfolk and Western, or the word "and" (or maybe both?)? It is described as "N&W Caboose 1930-'63 Steam Era", which is a pretty broad range and could be either.
- Second, my assumption is that it will decal one car - let me know if that is incorrect (I've got two more AMB models in the project queue).
