    I thought I'd share the beginnings of an experiment I'm working on with everyone, for my own home made lettering. I'm going to be purchasing (at some time in the future....)

    Here's a link to a proto pic I've based my initial sample on, and my test lettering is attached; the final version will be printed without the yellow & gray background. I have to buy the correct font from railfonts before spending too much more time on this.

    I love the idea. Purposely mismatching the color for the renumbering patch is the easy part, and lends just as much verisimilitude as the blotchy "UNION PACIFIC".
