The D&RGW/RGS steam engines went through several different lettering and numbering schemes during their service. For example the changes in the cab numbering style for the 455, pre and post wreck. We have attempted to develop a decal sheet that will allow the modeller to duplicate almost all engine markings. We recommend that the modeller refer to pictures that show the specific engine being modeled.

The following decal set will letter one of two D&RGW styles and one of two RGS styles.

On3 Example

One hundred 30' wooden flat cars were built built by the D&RG in the mid-1880s and were numbered from 6000 to 6099. However, the railroad soon required cars with greater capacity and these cars were replaced with heavier capacity cars as needed. Most of these cars were scrapped or sold, but a few were converted into Maintenance of Way service and survived to the end of service. None of these cars remained in revenue service by the end of World War II. This decal set covers the paint and lettering scheme for these cars from the time of the creation of the D&RGW, in 1921, until their end of revenue service, around 1944.

The following decal sets will letter one 6000 series 30' wooden flat car as they were painted in service on the D&RGW:

0n3 Example
his decal set is intended to cover D&RGW Maintenance of Way equipment for which model kits are readily available, but otherwise cannot be fitted into a general category of M.O.W. equipment; specifically, the ex-600 series flat cars that were converted to M.O.W. service, 06051, 06084, and 06092. While we normally design our decal sets to cover all the lettering schemes of a car over its' life on a railroad, with only one exception, we were unable to find any pictures of these cars in any paint scheme other than the post-1939, gray with black lettering/flying herald paint scheme. This set covers this last lettering scheme. Those interested in modeling these cars in the earlier paint scheme (red paint with white lettering) can use our 6000 series flat car decal set and make an educated guess as to the actual lettering used on the car.

The following decal sets will letter one of these cars in the flying herald paint scheme:


 
D&RGW Flangers
     
     
On3: SJD-351c £8.50
     
This decal set was created for San Juan Car Companyís Flanger OD kit in On3. This set will letter Flanger OD, OE or OH in white lettering, or Flanger OD or OH in black lettering. The lettering on the Flangers saw the use of different stencils when they were repainted and we have included all of these differences in this set. Multiple choices of repack and reservoir dates are also included. These combinations of Flanger lettering options were chosen as the blades of these three Flangers were very similar. Flanger OE was almost identical in appearance to OD, and the other minor differences between these three flangers can easily be modeled using the SJCC kit.

D&RGW Passenger Cars 1912 - 1951
HOn3: SJD-700 to order  
Sn3: SJD-702 to order  
On3: SJD-701 £21.50
Nn3:  SJD-715 to order  





This decal set is designed for the 1930-1951 time period, but can be used for most cars back to 1912 or earlier. The car names included are only for the cars existing in the 1930s, and the express markings are only for 1918 and later.

Lettering was always gold until the cars were painted yellow. At different times, Gold Leaf and Imitation Gold paint were used. The use of gold striping was discontinued in 1912. The actual lettering styles and layouts for the 1870 to 1912 period are hard to determine from photos because the photo emulsions in those days did not register the lettering on the red cars. One photo labeled as taken in 1886 does show "Denver & Rio Grande" on the letterboard in the same style as these decals.

The following decal sets will letter 4 to 7 passenger cars depending on the types of cars being lettered*. The Nn3 set will letter 5 to 8 passenger cars.** Please note: The Nn3 set will not have the car end lettering or the white reservoir test and repack dates found in the larger scale sets. The lettering is too small to print let alone see!.
