    Hi all
    Anyone able to tell me how high in 7mm scale the lettering on the frames of GWR Locos denoting the shed allocation were please, I believe that the lettering was plain white? I want to see if I can get a couple of transfers made for GW period West Wales sheds.

    I understand that the lettering sizes were said to be three inches high for the divisional code and about two inches high for the shed code. The shed markings, on the frame, was started in 1930, as an experiment, and became increasingly common practice during World War Two.
    Great Western Way has a full listing of coding.
    Graham.

    Ian,
    Sorry, I forgot to add.
    If you tell me where your locomotives are to be based I can provide the correct codes, if that helps!
