3M has very thin or narrow striping tape; check an auto supply store.

Price has gone up some over the years,but not too bad considering...

Mine is also Chartpak, bought years ago from an office supply dealer in Nebraska.  I bought enough rolls that I shouldn't ever run out because the local stores said it was obsolete.  "Everyone" was using computers for their graphics, so there was no market for the tape.  Looks like they were wrong...

Thanks to all..I'll try some Chartpak tape,I'll see if I can get some this week...I think I need 1/64,I'll have to measure the lines on locos I have.I was hoping to just find anything I can use,but if I can get specific sizes,even better..
