SOU Claytor Lettering Decals

Anyone aware of ANY n-scale Decal sets with Southern Claytor lettering suitable for boxcars?

I have come up with nothing, though I suspect mimicking the fond would not be too difficult.

thanks,

That depends... what do you mean by "Claytor" lettering?

All four of Microscale's Rolling Stock sets include some of the sublettering that was common towards the end, sets numbers are 60-13, 60-14, 60-1473 and 60-4196... the last three feature lettering for the "Green Light" scheme while the first one has red and green "Big John" lettering.

I think he means the "interim scheme" used by N&W and SOUTHERN after the 1982 merger until the Norfolk Southern scheme was decided on (1984?).

Yes, that's what I thought too. I always thought it was too blah...


Hmm... yeah, it should've
had stripes and wiggly
lines... and a gazebo...


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.

That's interesting - and in fact I have one of those - I think that is sort of Claytor V0.0

This is what I mean:

That came out nice! Southern was always my favorite railway. I grew up two blocks from the Southern freight yard in New Orleans.


Hmm... amazingly, it's
still there, but it's now
Norfolk Southern..

That looks familiar!

I used a few Northeast Decal sets.

Just a quick (useless?) note - before the line was discontinued, Floquil made Southern red paint. Looked good.


Hmm... Kiz lives in the
past...

I used TCP-224 "Southern 1940-1950's FRT. Car Red" on mine.

I've always wanted some cars with that lettering on them too.  The closest I've found is Microscale's condensed gothic letterying (87-93-1) which I've used for an N scale car or two.  I'm sure there's an N sized version too but I made the HO work.  It's very close, but of course you have to apply individual letters.
