    Greetings All,

    I recently acquired around 40 Atlas 90 ton 3 bay hoppers that I'd like to eventually repaint/reletter for L&N.

    Can anyone suggest a company that could print some L&N open hopper decals?

    This is the look I'm going for:

    L&N coal hopper



    Thanks!

    I have bought nice custom decals from http://www.railgraphicsdecals.com/

    At one time he would not do decals if there was a copyright problem which may be the case with L&N decals. I'd ask because this may have changed.

    I had some decals made by Solidesign. I only needed 24 but they sent a page of 52. All decals had individual car numbers. Cost was about $2.00 per car. Would be less if I needed another sheet as all of the cost for artwork and set up is up front. Just for comparison my first sheet of 52 decals was about $105. Another sheet of 52 would have been just $14 more and brought the cost down to about $1 per car. You'll run into the same conditions whenever you go.

    Thanks Brian, looks like they may be a good option to pursue. I'll check them out.
