Stuck On You

Do you want to see some pictures of these new transfers I was raving about on a model, then?

Himself has stuck the crests and the 'Ffestiniog First' monograms produced for us by Precision Decals onto our model of new Observation Carr 100.

These are the finishing touches its been waiting months for.

I'm really, really pleased with how the monograms have turned out. As I wrote in a post two weeks ago, when we tried making our own transfers at home they came out a brown colour, but these are a lovely, shiny gold as they should be.

Here's a closer look at the crest showing the one on the end of the carriage..

And a view of the other side.

If you're coming along to the Railex show at Stoke Mandeville at the end of the month you'll be able to see these transfers in the flesh. I can promise you won't be disappointed.


  1. Rob,
    what do you use for the gold '100' numbers? and does the same source do the gold THIRD, FIRST, GUARD etc names too? Thanks Colin

  2. The small gold numbers are generic lettering from Fox. The carrige door class transfers are Fox products again from their 4mm GWR carriage range. (We've only just discovered them - so much more accurate than the Blackham ones we'd been using for 20+ years) Also easier to use because they're waterslide rather than dry rub.
