These posters were often applied to the sides of vans particularly in the 1950s & 60s. Period photographs show them on goods stock. These were often applied to block trains for ease of identification. These labels printed on special photographic paper will provide your freight stock with additional detail and authenticity.
Now available in 2mm scale / N gauge, these prototypical railway van labels add variety to your rolling stock.

Train Reporting Numbers Western Region
TRN-WR2 A6 Pack
The Western Region of British Railways used these steel panels for train identification until the end of steam. Self adhesive labels with polystyrene sheet supplied allow you to make your own unique codes. The pack also comes with 72 ready to use codes. As well as instructions, the pack has a detailed explanation of how codes were used.
Train reporting numbers were used to identify trains in the internal working timetable. These codes contained one letter & 2 numbers or 3 numbers to uniquely identify a particular train, or to denote its route (particularly on busier lines). The reporting numbers were displayed on the front of locos in a steel bracket along with the lamp headcodes. On Western Region it was used to identify usual as well as special trains (e.g. summer Saturday excursions), to allow signallers to identify and route them correctly.
Titled Train Packs will allow you to model the many named trains that ran over the British railway network.
