    Nice runby, as usual, Tom. I've always liked the RS-1, particularily for the cab, which wouldn't look too out of place on a steamer. I also like that tank car and the nice job on the Joisey Central car: C-D-S makes a lot of lettering sets for northeastern U.S. roads.

    Looking good Tom. :thumb:
    The New York Central Lines coach is the one I am missing from my set. The RPO and baggage cars only have New York Central on them. The diner and observation cars have New York Central Lines on them. The Pullman is just labeled Pullman.

    Thanks guys!

    I really like CDS Lettering. I am so sad that they are going out of business. I need to get a bunch more of their dry transfers.

    My son found that car in the used car section of the LHS. He is into passenger trains right now and also likes the NYC.

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    I think that's why, of all the diesels, I like the RS-1 the best.

    The owner of CDS is Tom Hood, who has a fantastic layout that occupies the entire basement of his house, including under the garage (which is somewhat unusual for Canadian homes). The layout is Canadian Northern (CNor) in the 1940s, as if they had not been taken over by Canadian National/Canadian Government Railways in the 1920s. Lots of beautiful steam - including a brass engine for almost every stall of his 24+ stall-roundhouse.

    Andrew, thanks for that link. I wasn't aware that Tom Hood had such a large layout.
    TomPM, I also wasn't aware that C-D-S was going out of business. The last time that I ordered more custom lettering, I talked to Al Craig, who mentioned that they were looking for a buyer for the business. While I've finally learned how to properly apply decals, I've always preferred dry transfers: most of my freight cars are lettered with C-D-S sets, and almost all of my passenger cars:
    Kitbashed headend equipment
    have been lettered using their alphabet and passenger car data sets.
