Anyone have MEC or BM steam decals,
« on: July 11, 2014, 06:04:33 PM »

I have two projects that I would like to get started on. One is a USRA 0-6-0 in MEC and the other one is a Baldwin R-1 4-8-2 for B&M. Both are based on upgraded Bachmann models.

Right now, I am having trouble finding proper decals for both engines and a proper trailing and tender trucks for the R-1.

Anyone have parts in their secret stash?

Thanks,
Dan

Try Highball Graphics, they have both Maine Central and B&M Steam decals. At least the more modern schemes.

I have secret stash of B&M decals from the defunct Northeast Decals, but I'm keeping them.   However as it was mentioned, Highball Graphics has a good range of B&M decals available.

I have a stash of the older Northeast Decals but cant recall if the MEC or BM ones I have are steam or diesel. I am certain I have diesel ones. Im away on holiday until the end of next week so cant check. If you have not found any you need by then, drop me a PM and I will have a look for you. Either way I dont need the BM / MEC decals and am happy to part with them.

Update...
Just found a list of the decals on a NscaleYardSale Yahoo group I posted a while ago.
All are NorthEast Decals.
this is what I have. Does not look like I have any steam.. But let me know via PM if you want any of them.

I've used the Highball graphics MEC decals.

The bigger problem I've run into is what do use to letter Maine Central passenger cars?

I loved Northeast Decals. That company and Concord Car Shops filled a huge hole in N scale decals, especially for New England Roads.

I was contacted by a member here and waiting the decal sets.

Now I just need to find the proper trucks. Anyone have parts left over from undec MP Pacifics? Or a copy of the parts diagram? I am looking for the larger Commonwealth Delta Trailing Truck.
