N gauge forum badges
« on: November 01, 2015, 09:22:11 PM »
I would really like a British Railways style 'N gauge Forum' badge for my Steam engine driver's hat - any ideas if one exists or how to make one.

I'm thinking that Trackside Signs could do the old BR station signs in sticky vinyl with the wording of choice?

The old style BR badge that station masters and station staff used to have on their hats. Not the two arrows sign but the 'real' BR sign

I've painted many N gauge people and I cannot see that you could see/make out anything that small. I am quite happy with a little copper dot on the hat. cheers john.

You misunderstand me. I'm looking for a badge for a full size hat.

I have mentioned 'Trackside Signs' before on the forum, but I can highly recommend them for bespoke signs. (And no, I am not on commission  :) ).  If you have not been in touch yet Bob, give them a ring, they were very helpful when I last phoned.  :thumbsup:
