In the British Columbia Railway section, everything is out of stock and none of the pictures are of BCR equipment.  I think they have some web site clean-up to do.

Black Cat has CP Rail and pre-CP Rail MOW sets, although I'm not sure whether Allen currently had then in N scale. If the demand is there you can probably get him to print them in N scale too.

Ya Chris; I can't find any mention of those in N scale on TMR or Central's website  so I guess I'll have to call and speak with him, BTW  - am I missing a site that lists Black Cat because he doesn't have one, nor an up to date catalog that I am aware of - please guide me to an "up to the minute" list of these outstanding decals if you know one ! :)

Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Thanks for the heads up, Pud! Ordered some multimark sets for the slabs, but not to worry I didn't buy up their stock in case you need a few  :trollface:

Also ordered a Script set. You need any of the decals back that you so generously sent me?
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

Yeah, Allen doesn't have his own website. TMR pretty much carries his whole line though.

I have all his contact information if you want to inquire direct.

I'm another that routinely transfers them to decal paper.  They work fine on smooth surfaces, but in N scale especially, there just isn't room around ribs and such for the backing sheet to bend.

Their X23 decals aren't that great:

Ouch! That looks like a tough job just getting the decals in there!
I've purchased and used some of the other sets without problem, but never looked at them under magnification like that.
I have some in hand, I'll check them out! Thanks for the heads up.....
Cheers,
Scott

I have a bunch of CDS sets, they make a bunch of Erie stuff. Most of them are fine, but the PRR X23 set...  :|

I was so un-happy with them that I didn't even do the other side of the car.

I just snorted coffee all over my keyboard!  :D
Thanks for the laugh, probably not intended to be funny, but I read it that way  :facepalm:
Cheers,

Hate to drag this up again, but who is TMR?
