    Chances are NP uses a custom font. Decal/Modeling companies are either gonna create their own version or get a copy of the real one from BNSF (thru their license). A quick search following my earlier instructions turns up this font, you might be able to find a free version somewhere. https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/sweet/square/medium-sc/ It's not exact, but probably as close as you're gonna get.

    If you feel like hand-lettering (and know what you're doing), I'd start with Arial and square off the curves. You'd have to remake some letters completely, but it's a start.

    Thank you for your help, Peter. I sent an email to the NPRHA in hopes they can help. I'll give them a week or two before trying my luck at hand crafting the numerals.

    Regards,

    I decided that the Indiana Western railroad needed some streamlined equipment...




    Sure,they might possibly be coaches far past the 1950's,but if they aren't 1950's era,there still good enough for me since i'm not that picky.

    NOTE:Screenshots are from TANE.
    Duct tape can't fix stupid. But it CAN muffle the sound.

    Nice! Glad to know that I'm not the only one who is the fan of the Indiana Western and I've also reskinned a few things to go with it as well:
