Mr. Bach Man,
 Sure would like to see some repaints of the 'Annie' 4-6-0 locomotive. Painted in the same schemes as the C-19 2-8-0's for Rio Grande would be most appreciated (Flying Grande and Moffit Tunnel heralds). These locomotives are CLOSE in size to the C-19 and would be excellent candidates for new paint. The new paint schemes would appeal to 1:22 and 1:20 scale modelers. I know new products are announced at the NMRA Convention, so put us on the request list and paint up some Rio Grande locos!
Happy Rails To You,
Ted

If they don't offer new paint and lettering, I have a suggestion.

Many years ago when the original 4-6-0 Big Hauler came out I repainted it and added Denver and Rio Grande Western lettering and the Moffet logo to the tender with decals.  It is now a shelf queen, but I can spot it on a siding to add to a scene.



It started off with Santa Fe lettering.  

For the past 10 years or so I have been using Stan Cedarleaf to make my decals.  He has an extensive library of existing RR lettering and logos and he will also help with custom lettering and logos.  I have used him for both types of lettering and I am very pleased with the results.  These are not Stan's decals, only because the conversion took place long before he started making decals.

His website is as follows.

Chuck,
 Thanks for the reply and photo. Loco looks great. I have done a few of these myself, in the past, but nothing is quiet as good as a factory paint job (in my opinion). I have used Stan's lettering in the past as well. I second your statement that he does good work.
Happy Rails To You,
Ted
