Bangor and Aroostook font question

For those of you who model the BAR, or those who produce artwork for BAR models, I was wondering what decals, if there are any, would be appropriate for renumbering boxcars and reefers with the large bold numbers on them. I have numerous Atlas, MicroTrains and Athearn boxcars and reefers that I have accumulated multiples of the same road number of to expand my roster, and now that I am working through my backlog of projects this is getting much closer to the actual doing part. However I haven't turned up any boxcar/reefer sets with the large numbers, unless of course I missed something obvious.

I'm pretty certain Micro Scale has a large number BAR  reporting marks in one of its composite sets.

The only 2 microscale sets that come up for freight under a BAR search are the state of Maine scheme and a composite reefer set which is the modern triangle reefer scheme which lacks the  large reporting marks. Microscale has discontinued a remarkable amount of good decal sets in the last decade. Especially since a lot of the appropriate prototypes have finally become available. One of the diesel sets does have large numbers for the cabs of the units, but they seem smaller then a lot rolling stock marks.
