Waterslide Transfers available to Members

LMS + 1234567890 (black shading) £3-00 per set inc. UK postage

LMS + 1234567890 (red shading) £3-00 per set inc. UK postage

The LMS letters are 5/8" high, which works out scale to 14" with numerals 0-9 7/16" high.
These are suitable for the 1928-1947 livery scheme, excluding Silver Jubilee in its initial black livery. They are not really usable for the pre-1928 livery, as the LMS used a different lettering both in size and style, or the post 1947 style which was sans-serif.


SOUTHERN + 1234567890 £2-75 per set inc. UK postage

The typeface used here is not a particularly good approximation of SR letter form. The sets we have consist of the 'SOUTHERN' in a strong yellow, pretty well cadmium yellow, and ¼" high and of style described as Egyptian serif. Numerals 0-9 are ¾" high and are sans serif. These sets are good for the style used by the Southern up to 1937 but, as always, research is necessary.


GREAT WESTERN £3-75 per set inc. UK postage

The sets consist of 'GREAT (crest) WESTERN'. The letters are gold with red shading and are ¼" high. The crest which is not the 'Q' type (ie garterless) could be discarded. These transfers are suitable for the period 1923-1936 with, or without the crest;- 1910-1936ish; passenger and mixed traffic locos: GREAT crest WESTERN, full lining. Freight locos, usually GREAT WESTERN, not always lined. 1936-1946; Circular GWR monogram, no lining all engines. 1946-1948; Passenger locos G crest W, full lining. Mixed traffic, and freight locos GWR, rarely lined.
