    Finally took pictures of my recent additions to the Gauge Railcar Leasing boxcar fleet. I now have three 50-footers; one in my original Erickson paint scheme (named after my friend who created the tachometer logo); and the two newest ones in dark blue with white lettering and logo.

    I wish !!! I don't have the capability to produce white decals at this time. I got Rail Graphics to do a run of 50 decals for me for my WONGGON Corp. gondolas (30 yellow 20 white); see other thread for pics of those units. On the same decal sheet I got them to add a couple of Gauge logos and the roadnames and numbers. I also got from them standard data for 1960's and 1970's boxcars. They did a great job of the decals, btw - - - very easy to work with, and they look fantastic.

    If you're talking about Rail Graphics, in South Elgin, Il., they're the same folks that did my Cindys harbor,and SHS&D decals, along with some C&NW/Metra decals I used on my commuter train.
    Their work is very high quality, and they are good folks to work with.

    Very cool Mike - they look totally prototypical. And thanks for the little tip on custom decals too.
