Jim Homoki has the PC black lettering for PC passenger cars.
PENN CENTRAL PASSENGER CAR LETTERING (BLACK)
SET NO. HO-3
This decal set was produced from original artwork based on company lettering standards and the review of numerous photographs. Standard letter proportions were modified as required to follow photos as closely as possible. This set provides the modeler enough black decals to cover nearly all variations of passenger cars that used black graphics.
This set contains the following items:
6" high roadnames
5” high numbers (Six valid car numbers provided, plus additional numbers may be easily created)
4” high car names and alphabet jumble
2 ¼” End numbers
Lettering for specific car types including “buffet” “parlor” “lounge” “diner”
Four styles of trust plate text
12” x 24” heralds
9” x 18” heralds
Some Penn Central passenger cars had all black graphics and others still used combinations of both black and white. At this time white decals need to be gathered from other sources, but future sets are planned to cover the white graphics on passenger, sleeper, and head end cars.
These are available at $4.00 per set (1 sheet), plus $0.50 shipping per order.
