I'm intrigued to see pictures of 201 with black numbers, I don't ever recall seeing any! Nice variation though, always like tractors with black numbers.

Well my name plates have arrived "But" yes its big But!! there in red,and not in black, :scratchhead: so they wil have to go back.

Does anyone no if 37504 and 37505,only had black name plates fitted?? :help:

 

Hi

 

I have repainted a number of etched nameplated, just paint over the whole plate and then carefully scrape the paint off the raised areas with a scalpel knife blade - works a treat!

Another option for changing the plate colour - remove the existing colour with a fibre glass pencil - paint overall with the desired colour, when dry rub the plate, face down on a flat surface on top of 1000/1200 wet/dry paper used dry - keeping it flat when rubbing - finally polish using the same technique on white etc printer paper.

Another tip, as your re-doing 37 201 - when fitting the big T transfer - align the bottom edge of the "T" with the dividing line of the yellow/grey bodyside bands - so the "T" sits on the top edge of the grey so to speak.

i know your question has already been answered, but i find this website helpful when looking for the names of locomotives:

Class 66, some great conversions there, I wish to convert my 37506 to 37672, the body colour is a match but I wonder if you could tell me wher you get your nose replacements and things like horns and detailing bits. I need to replace the nose On 506 with a centre headcode (blanked except lights) nose and place some horns on amongst other things.
