Cabside Numbers for T9
« on: February 25, 2019, 06:07:41 PM »
Hello All

Iíve never attempted renumbering a lcomtive before but Iím looking to renumber my UM T9.
Iíve been looking at the Fox Transfers website and to be frank, I canít really make head or tail of it.
I have managed to find cabside and splasher lining transfers but only in 1:76 scale. Such transfers would be a bonus, if they exist in N?
It may be that I have to buy individual cabside numbers but donít really know where to search.
Can anyone point me in the correct direction please.
Thanks
Martin

If the numbers are actually a plate, then Narrow planet do them, I had them do a custom number for myself and it was very good

 Martin, although SR Modellers, im not clued up on T9 number displays, dad fancies a couple of UM T9s but as yet their not coming!!

However i use Fox quite a bit, narrow planet are making me a set of plates for a Pannier Tank interloper!! They came highly recommended although a few weeks have passed and not heard anything about what state of play is yet  :-\

Fox do a set of straw coloured cabside numbers, in 3 different sizes to represent 8" 9" and 10" numbers. Quite a few of each, I've renumbered some N class moguls with these and you have to be in the calmest of moods because 5 1.4mm numbers side by side getting straight and true is enough to test anyone's patience.

I'll checkout the number set and see about sending you a link, assuming they are the sizes and colour needed for a T9  :dunce:

On the fox site using the search box

FRH2004 will list a single set of 8" 9"  or 10" and a set of all 3

Thanks for that Craig.
Iíll probably order a set. Whether Iím up to applying them is another matter. In the past, me and decals donít really mix!
Anyway, Iíll give it a whirl.
Thanks
Martin

Presume you're talking about Grouping period, the cabside number plates are quite small, I represent them by just a bit of red paint

You want Gill Sans 9" numbering:
https://fox-transfers.co.uk/transfers/prototype-9-inch-steam-cabside-numbering-67600

Fox don't do a sheet with actual fully made up T9 numbers, so you'll need to make up the appropriate number from the sheet above from individual decals.

Cheers,
Alan

Thanks for the info.
Iíve just ordered some cabside numbers, smokebox numbers and crests for the tender.
We shall see how I get on.
Affixing transfers takes me out of my comfort zone but Iíll give it a go.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Well full marks to Fox Transfers.
Ordered at 3-00pm yesterday and arrived by 11.30 today.

What a fiddly job but the T9 is done. Iíll let it dry for 24hours (as the instructions suggest) then go over it with some matt varnish.

Hopefully itíll turn out ok. 
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
