These are HO-scale decals.  I do the research and artwork, and Rail Graphics prints them for me.  I use either photographs or actual railroad stencils to be as accurate as possible.  But a word about pricing.  Custom decals are based on number of colors and size of decal, so as the number of colors go up, or the decal is larger, the price is appropriately higher.  On such small print runs, it's a fact of life.  (Hopefully if these sets are well received, I can order larger print runs which will bring costs down.)  Unless noted, sets do one car but various numbers plus spares are included; also included is a lettering diagram.  I've tried to indicate a specific model where possible (number in parenthesis is Walther's stock number if known).  Please let me know what you think.  PayPal accepted using the above E-mail address, 15% discount for orders $25 and greater.
