In this case I'm going to attempt to put on the loco numbers using dry transfers. We'll see how it goes.

End of Car Lettering
I have always detested applying decals to the ends of rolling stock. I always struggle to find a way to hold the car vertical. I have tried putting it in various containers like cups and such, propping it up in my foam cradle etc. Well last night I got out the machinist tools. In this case, a right angle grinding plate. I used a storage container as a spacer and a mini quick clamp to hold the loco shell to the angle plate. Its a lot easier to apply decals when the shell isn't moving all over the place.
