    There is likely not to be any typeface like that. That kind of lettering was often designed as a one-off in house.

    Nickelplateroad, I am wondering if you could copy the lettering from the sharpest photo you could find. The one you posted is not bad. Not razor sharp, but anyone posting a screenshot that large might be able to expect a similar resolution. Maybe a one-shot "Sharpen" in something like IrfanView, but not much more. Bending it to the curvature might be a challenge.

    You can find a sharp image of it. Then paste it on a separate layer in your image editing software (gimp, photoshop, etc) Then trace the letters with a paintbrush and you will have a custom font.

    Looks good, but the orange looks a bit too yellow. It's more of a vermillion colour in the pictures I've seen.

    It may be varied lighting or exposure. Yours looks a dead ringer for the photo you posted, others look darker. You could make variants maybe, as it would have to match any B units or coaches. Outstanding job NKP!

    How do make variants?

    Got around to messing with the CB&Q SD7's again, fixed the trucks and fuel tank color and now it's done

    CB&Q SD45 in the Pre-Merger scheme. Nose stripes are not accurate but the white hood stripe is pretty good and I think the nose stripes fit the model well. Enjoy!

    Nickelplateroad, variants would just be additional cloned copies with that orange/vermillion color tweaked a little bit for each one. You could probably make a skins kit, but probably easier just to clone a copy and then tweak the color.
