WAGON NUMBER PLATES

This product is an A6 SHEET of printed text representing the Midland Railway pattern of cast iron plates fixed to all freight stock and was a standard pattern, introduced circa 1875 and lasted on some wagons right up to scrapping. I produce two versions; one for wagons and one for brake vans. The sheet has two sets of two plates, so enough for two wagons.

 

They are printed on high quality paper and therefore the surface of the printed plate is flat. I think that even at 7mm scale, the raised letters and numbers of the prototype are hard to distinguish.

 

So if you have a specific number wagon that you wish to portray, or simply want some different numbers to the transfers that might have been supplied with a kit, I will draw (using Autocad) and print the plates for you.

 

Full instructions are included, but simply carefully cut around the plate with a sharp scalpel and stick down onto your model. The cut paper edge would benefit from being coloured black with a felt pen. You may also wish to spray the plate with car lacquer to protect the surface from any weathering treatments that may be added later.

Just let me know what number (or numbers) you require and whether they are wagon plates or brake van plates.

 

One sheet with 4 plates of two numbers costs £4.50 plus £1 post and packing

Two to nine sheets costs £4.00 each plus £1 post and packing
