I’ve followed this topic with interest. I am not very knowledgeable as to correct decals you are referring to. Would those be the same as the Champ Decal HC-49, N&W, Open Hopper, Black car, 55&70 TON?

Thank You,

Carl --

Ouch -- you may be right. I don't retain a current copy of the Commissary, and was working from memory. If so, it's a sad loss.

If the situation is correct, a possible option would be for N&WHS and a surviving family member to work with a decal seller such as Bill Mosteller of Great Decals to reinstitute the sets. Several of Bill's current sets have originated from designers no longer intrested in being in the decal business.

I was told that the NWHS has long been out of the hopper decals and didn’t think they would be able to get more since the guy that made them had died a few years ago.

Was I misinformed?
