    For a couple of days I have been thinking about how to paint / create the white and yellow lines on my N scale road, when I suddenly remembered the thread by Gavin Miller describing how he build his bridge, and I remembered that he used some kind of tape to make the lines, so I checked it
    and sure enough, he used a charting tape called LetraLine, so now I have been searching online for a place to buy that kind of tape

    The only online store I can find is here
    but you can't buy from there (it says n/a for all the different types)

    Does anyone know where to buy 1/16" and 1/32" white and yellow charting tape?

    I would prefer either tape of some kind or decal over masking / painting, because I know that I won't get a really sharp line when painted.

    Check out Michael's, craft stores, architectural/drafting supply houses, and even Office Depot type stores.

    You also might check out Art/Paint supply type places.

    Good Luck.

    I have tried Michaels, Beverly's, Jo Ann's, Office Depot, Staples without finding it, so I think I have to find it online somewhere :(

    Try Aaron Brothers Art Mart. That's where I got mine when I lived in San Diego.

    I just looked it up on the internet: go to this website:


    I think they will have everything you need and will ship to your door.

    I would suggest you looking at stores that specialize in art and drafting supplies. There's also a company called Chartpak that makes different tapes like this and that's were I would get them. I used tapes like this for years making tape-ups for graphics to be screen-printed. I have a bunch left over (stripes, dashes, arrows...), but unfortunately, they a too wide for N scale, but I did use painted PCB tapes (also made by Chartpak) for my road lines and it worked out fine.
