OK jp, I give up. Unable to determine the error. :think: :think: By the way, what's the status on the UTLX tank car decals :?:


I have some artwork for the UTLX tankcars but I need more pictures of the prototypes, especially the ends.
Is Intermountain's H0 model correct? http://www.intermountain-railway.com/ho/images/46315wl.jpg


I have no idea what the ends look like, you've probably been able to find many photos of the UTLX cars (they were very common), but probably no photos of the ends.

Yes, I have found many photos which show several versions of the UTLX paint scheme.
The ends have CAPY (volume), which is different for each version of the tank car, it has to match the road number.
The book about ACF tankcars has only one suitable UTLX car, which is not a suprise because UTL had their own car factory.

The artwork for UTLX 8000 gallons tank cars is ready.
Who wants those decals?
24 sets will fill the sheet, I take 10. 10 different numbers will be available unless someone wants more. Two different repack dates are included.

Count me in for at least 1 set, maybe 2.

Sorry for the elementary question, but I'm sort-of new to the beyond-RTR game. Is a "set" enough for both sides of 1 car? I would like enough for 4 cars, different numbers.
Also, is there a listing of all the decals you have currently available?
Sometimes you win... sometimes you learn.

A set is for 3 sides. 2 sides of the car + 1 spare. I have used something from the spare almost every time - and I don't think that I am more clumsy than average.
Yes, there is a topic in Prototype/Models section for them. I hope to update it during the weekend and add some pictures of the models. http://www.ttnut.com/decals-t2044.html
