Hello Alive,

Wayne here in Gloucester VA, I painted one of these many years ago and found that decals were hard to come by, I contacted Champ Decals (out of Buss) and got some made. Before the car was moved from the site along the river in Roanoke to its current site, I took a series of photo's for paint and lettering reference. The car turned out fairly well and ended up selling the car, however I have got it back from an ebay seller after many years!
I will look for the decals I had left over if you are are interested?

Hi y'all,

For the first time in 8-years, I am buying a brass model. In this case an NWSL N&W Dynamometer car. I haven't researched the model to much, but did see one photo in The N&W Handbook and thought the model looked pretty good compared to prototype photos. If I am not satisfied, at least I can sell a used brass for a much better return then some used plastic models.
The model I am getting from Bruce's Train Shop is unpainted, and in the event it does not have usable decals, if any at all, what are some good decal sets to use in it's place? Hopefully some still in production? :) I'm doing some research now on how to remove tarnish, if needed, before painting and of course, how to paint brass models. I've never done so before, but understand it involves a significant amount of prep-time. If I'm painting myself, I'd like to use Scalecoat paint, not Scalecoat II, as I understand it can be baked so an extra durable finish.

Thank you
