Appreciate it! I am looking at ways to revive my Southern Rwy. baggage car project and maybe a few other things.

I appreciate the orders which I received. Except for a mail order received today that was expected, all orders have been shipped and the buyers should have received them by now. If you have ordered, but have not received the decals yet, please let me know. I have put the remaining stock on eBay as a fixed price, buy it now sale. The most popular order quantity size was what I called four sets containing enough material for six cars. That was offered at $12 and I have revised shipping down to $3 based on experience. As of now, I only have tens of these left. Searching on "Southern passenger car decals" should get to the listing, but if you have any trouble, contact me via "reply to sender", not group.
I appreciate you interests, and the response is encouraging me to think about doing some products for the passenger car modeler market.

Some of you may remember that a couple of decades ago I tried to produce a Southern Railway heavyweight baggage-express HO kit in resin, but did not complete the project. I had decals printed by Rail Graphics for the car in Southern's gothic (block style) with imitation gold color. These would be good from 1941 until Southern started using the metallic appearing Scotchcal in mid-1956. The decals are very good and accurate. I scanned Southern Rwy. drawings of the letters and figures from the SRHA archives and traced over them with a CAD program to produce the artwork. Unfortunately I did not include items to make it a general purpose set, but it is good for baggage-express cars and also Southern Railway coaches if you can find a 3/4 in. decal stripe to be used on the bottom of the coach side, or paint and mask one yourself.
I've decided to sell off my stock of them. If anyone is interested, send me an email by hitting the 'reply to sender' button. Please be careful not to post to the group instead. Images are attached. My car side with the decals applied has suffered from being tossed in a box, but you can get the picture.
