Time To Order TrainCat Decals . . . .

OK EVERYONE, Decal Ordering time is here!!

Since I will need to know how many sheets to order (and that directly affects pricing), I have placed decals in the online store. With the exception of the H30 & H30a, which will require a sheet unto themselves, the other items will not be expensive.

Please go to the store and order the quantity and type(s) of decals you want. The price is temporary set at $.01 just to make the cart happy. Go to checkout and select PAY IN STORE. That way you will not have to pay for the item until it is ready. This is currently only to get a count. Once the decals are ready, I will set the price and email you where you can edit the order and pay for the decals.

So the store is back in business? Great!
I have always wanted to order the N PRR East 4-tracks signal tower, but I cannot find it in the store. Has it been discontinued?

I may order the substation in N too, would it be very hard to assemble?

I see no "Pay In Store" option.  Going through the secure checkout I get to the part where it asks for payment options and it lists either "Check or Money Order" or "Paypal".

Did you mean the first option?


BTW, I don't see the Gra gons listed any longer.  They haven't been released yet, have they?

Traincat,  Decals,   I must be dreaming  :D

I ordered mine. Or I think I did. The site was pretty slow, like I was running to the fridge while waiting for each page to load. And I also could not figure out how to pay in store.

I will use "Check or Money Order".  International shipping cost are extremely high if looking at the decals alone, so some additional items might be added when doing the final order.
I have also added some "spares" in the order for the case that I might damage some during application. I just know that accidents will happen, and they are more likely if I don't have spares...

Bob,

I just ordered 2 sets of G22b decals and selected check/money order.  I did not see the pay in store option.  My order # is 1128.

Just like Big Commerce, They changed the verbiage. Select Check / MO and it will do the same thing.

If the order is for Decals alone, I will ship 1st Class and refund the difference. USPS has been calculating using a Medium Box instead of a Small Box for International Priority. I reported the bug, but no response as usual. I just refund the difference as "Excessive Shipping Charges".

 Excellent!, My order is in, now I've got to rewrite my to-do list. The G22 build just moved to the top.

Bob,

Will you be doing "Livestock Special" decals for the B&O stock cars as well? i know it's a multi-colored nightmare, but the only dumb questions is the one not asked.

Hi John,

Welcome to RW! I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to the B&O Livestock Special. It, by far, is my favorite B&O paint scheme ever made for a freight car. The trouble is that using my S1 would be a foob.

The B&O Livestock Special has a fishbelly sill, and IIRC, dreadnaught ends. The S-1 and S-1 have a normal sill and flat metal ends. The arrangement of the cut-outs is different too. Since I model B&O, it is high on my personal list, but I do not think it would be a commercial success. I also need a REALLY good side roster shot to be able to create the artwork.

I was able to find this in my stash:
"For a short while in 1960-62 the B&O leased from North American Car Corporation some 50 foot steel stockcars that were cars rebuilt from ATSF “Whalebelly” automobile cars. These were painted Aluminum with the Baltimore & Ohio in white with Livestock Special slogan in yellow across the length of cars on a blue striped field with yellow edging."

Bob,

The reason I asked is because I have a friend that asked me to do these in HO. I've started on the artwork. Of course once they're done, I can use my "shrinky dink" machine to make them N scale. Although, it would make logical and logistical sense to get them printed at the same time. I realize that it would be a low-draw car, but the possibility exists.

Bob,

Just to clarify, it looks like for the H30, the decal sheet will do multiple cars. Will the other decal sheets do multiple cars or just one car? Thanks

Hi Bob,

Order placed. I'm hoping the PRR N6b cabin car decals include the "early" pre-Keystone scheme, including "Eastern Region."

The H30 will do 5 different variants of 12 different rd#'s each
The H30a will do 6 different variants of 12 different rd#'s each
The G22b will do 2 different variants of 12 different rd#'s each
The N6b will do 1 variant of 12 different rd#'s ***

The rest do 1 variant of 12 different rd#'s

*** I am working on adding two additional variants to the N6b; A) Black lettering with Shadow Keystone for yellow paint and B) White Pre-Keystone. I would also like to add most of the regions if someone would like to post a list.  ;)

EDIT: I have received several emails asking if I would only sell one version at a time to keep the cost low. Trouble with that is some sell better and I could get stuck with a lot of decals. I am trying to do the decals at the most reasonable price I can.

I don't have a need for the decals in question.  My first thought when reading the subject line was some sort of TrainCat graffiti  :facepalm:
