Here is a link from a very nice GB&W web site.

http://www.greenbayroute.com/decals.htm

Looks like D&M Custom Decals might be your best/only bet, but  I don't know whether this list is up to date. Scale Rail had some nice products, but they have left the business. Let us know what you find out.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

I asked Donald from D&M about GBW decals last summer, this was his response:

Quote
Sorry, no GBW diesel in N scale.... we did have them at one time, but
discontinued because there was no market as we had them a long time.
Don

He'll do a custom run for you if you want, but it will cost you for the artwork setup.

However, as I would like a few sets of these decals as well, if you decide to do a custom run I'd be willing to contribute and their may be others.

I can make those for you this weekend on my Alps...doing a new batch of PE decals.  What engine are you wanting these on?  No charge.  I may want to do one of these tool  :D

Cheers

Woo hoo, you're back!


Hmm... now don't go
away any more...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

Joe,
That's mighty generous. They are for a N scale Likelike C424 and I'm doing the loco pictured as I have a ton of shots from multiple visits to Green Bay.

The #315 is GBW's only C430, if you picked up a C424 they had plenty of those as well.

You are correct. So throw enough numbers in for a couple of the 424s.

FWIW I also got an email response from Don Manlick confirming that his GBW decals are long out of production and he doesn't have stock.

GBW had a really unique roster, even for an Alco road. Green Bay was definitely THE place for Alcos in the 80's.

Hi
Looks like you have already found a source for decals.  I was a bit slow.  I had a friend make the decals for my GBW C-424.  I can check to see if he can do more.

Cheers
Steve

Steve, Thanks for the generosity.  Since Joe offered first, I'll see what he comes through with.  Your GBW buiild is my standard of aspiration.

FWIW this is the email I got form Don Manlick:

I appreciate the fact you tried us first, but again, sorry I couldn't be of help.
Yes we are still printing decals... mostly HO, have a couple of N scale boat decals.... the Chessie Carferry, Edmund Fitzgerald
ore boat, Reiss Coal boats in N and HO scale.  Have much in GBW but all HO.  One MILW RD box car set in N.
Sorry, no website.  We have a good selection of prototype sets, but in HO.  We also do custom decals in various scales....
If you would like such literature, provide your address and I will send it out.
Appreciate whatever kind word you can pass on.  Thanks again. Good nite.
Regards,
Don Manlick, MMR

Now that's stand-up service from a small vendor.  Some whom we discuss here should take note.

I agree, I've done business with Don in the past and was very pleased with the product and service.

Steve sent me a couple sets of the herald, just haven't done much modeling this summer.
Gotta' start the paint shop up soon.
Edit:
Dang it, hit the wrong button.
As a Ann Arbor modeler there's a lot of GBW decals I'd like to see.
Then again, as a Ann Arbor modeler, there's a lot of AA decals I'd like to see!
Got the loco' boxcar set, need covered hoppers next!

Joe, can you talk to the bosses!?!
