LMS + 1234567890 (red shading) £2-50 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.
SOUTHERN + 1234567890 £2-25 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 £3-25 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.
