Decal sheet for 10 N5s

Hello
I'm trying to paint up a batch of N5s that I bought into PRR
Problem is I need a decal sheet to do 10 of them in circle keystone
It looks like the microscale sheet will only do one and mount Vernon's website says it sheets will only do one N5

It looks as though you'll need to buy 10 of them.  ;)

I believe the Mt Vernon decals you are looking at are in O scale for 1 car.
There are also decals for "steel cabin cars" in N scale (N-PNS) that will cover 6 cars.

These are for pre circle keystone, but you could possibly doctor them a little to suit your time frame?
My memory is probably not serving me well, but I seem to remember that only N8 cabin cars ever received circle keystones?  :?

John has indicated that he would run any of his decal sheets in N scale if someone put together an order for 10-20 sets.

hope this helps.....
Cheers,
Scott

Since some N5s survived into Conrail days, I initially scoffed at the idea that there were none in CK.  However, I couldn't come across am in-service prototype picture of one, although I found several in Shadow Keystone; the others just said Pennsylvania, with no keystone. There were some pics of N5cs and N8s in CK.

I'm sure someone can come up with one if they existed...

So I thought they had circle keystones applied but looks like Shadow keystone will be the paint scheme I need or I can do it in pre keystone paint scheme and be able to do 3 cabins with one MVS decal sheet
Microscale only have enough decals for 2 shadow cars
So Looks like I can go ahead and at least get a few done in the pre keystone paint scheme

But do I still need 10 sheets is the questions
