We regret to inform our customers that all decal products are currently unavailble. We are currently working to resolve this shortage, stay tuned...


I'd been going nuts over the years fitting together striping and lettering for my personal modeling. Now we have a solution. The HDS list of available linework and alphabet styles will continue to grow. The HDS line of decal products is derived from extensive primary source data that includes period imagery, period manufacturer catalogs, and surviving equipment. Lettering is traced from suitable images or modified for accuracy from our extensive font library.

In house printing is done on high quality wet transfer decal films via ALPS printer. This printing system allows for an extensive variety of color options that includes whites and metalics.

ALL decal sets are available in F, O, S, and HO. Contact us for additional scales and ordering information at:

Baldwin Factory Striping and Lettering.

These Baldwin striping sets are designed to fit the Spartan Series and the upcoming MMI 8-18C American release. These Baldwin Striping Styles are adaptible to fit any Baldwin locomotive from 1870 to just after 1900.

These sets have been the product of several years of information gathering and are the most accurate ever created. The data sources include direct measurements from "Sonoma" on display at CSRM, and the restoration documents for her and "Eureka". Additional documentation includes the Baldwin Style Books at Stanford University. No other decaling sets are as complete, accurate, or sharp. Elements from these sets were created for the MMI model decaling. Lettering where possible has been traced from builder's photographs, and high quality imagery of "Sonoma", and "Eureka".
