EDIT - sometimes it pays to ask for what you really want.  I am looking to letter some blue-scheme Wabash passenger cars.  any pointers to decal sets would be appreciated.

ORIGINAL POST
I'm looking for two copies of out-of-print Microscale set, #70156.   It's an N-scale UP-style alphabet sheet  in Yellow.  I know that things like this sit around hobby shops almost forever, so if anyone knows where a couple of these sets are to be had I'd appreciate a PM.

Regards,
George

George,
Your number you have in your post doesn't look like it's right? Is it a typo? I looked in some of my old MS catalogs and did not find anything even close in any of the scales.

Now I am wondering if you meant this set..............

It's supposedly the old N-scale verision of this HO  set (90166): http://www.microscale.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=90166&Category_Code=ALPHA&Product_Count=49 .

What I'm trying to do is letter some Wabash passenger cars, but I'm pretty certain there have never been any N-scale Wabash passenger car decals for the Blue schemes

Gary Roe has done N scale versions of Mark Vaughn's HO Wabash passenger set.  I'm on the run but will look for his contact information later... unless someone finds it on Google first.

I have some and they are nice.

N-scale versions of Mark V's decals would be great!

George,

Did some searching and found a link too Mark Vaughn's site here. http://www.wabashcustomdecals.com/default.asp Also found them listed on Des Plains Hobby's site here. http://www.desplaineshobbies.com/store/search/brand/Mark-Vaughan-Decals/ Not sure if this is what you need but you could also check here at Highball Graphics. Jim has lettering sets in various colors and sizes. Something hear might work for you if you cannot get decals from Mark Vaughn. http://www.mgdecals.com/Alpha%20Sets.htm
Hope something here helps for ya because I know how hard it is sometimes to get just what you need!!

As already mentioned Mark Vaughn's decals are HO scale though there may be lettering size that can be of use.  As far as contacting Gary Roe just Click Here.  It will open up your default email compose page.  (The link, at the N-scale Varnish website, is set up so as to hide Gary's email address from spammers.)
