Reading Co. 50' "Banner" and "RDG" Boxcar Decals Have Arrived!

Written by Conductor

The Reading Modeler is pleased to announce the arrival of TWO new Reading decal sets:  50' "Banner" boxcars, and 1970s "RDG" boxcars!  The "Banner" set includes data to accurately letter 10 classes of 50' boxcars in this scheme, which are appropriate for the 1960s-1970s era.  The "RDG" set includes data to letter 5 classes of 40' and 50' cars in the 1970s-era "RDG" scheme.

The "Banner" decals are $8.00 per set, while the "RDG" decals are $6.00 per set.  Each set includes sufficient material to letter TWO cars, and are now available in the Reading Modeler Company Store!  

IMPORTANT NOTE!  Due to our supplier (Rail Graphics) ceasing operations, quantities of these newest decal sets are limited, particularly the "Banner" set.  We are currently EXPLORING options to continue production with another supplier, but no definitive decisions have been made (we DO have a layout to build, after all!).  Thus, when current stock is sold, they may be unavailable for a time.
