A great deal of time has been spent researching this set of decals by Charles H. Givens; who compiled the historical and technical information on S.P. steam engine painting and lettering, as well as produced the artwork for the decal set itself. This highly accurate, high quality decal set covers all steam engines in service on the S.P. from 1898 to 1960, with the exception of those engines painted and lettered for Daylight passenger service. This set is available in Aluminum or Aluminum-Bronze, for engines painted and lettered between 1898 and 1946; or in S.P. Lettering Gray, for engines painted and lettered between 1946 and 1960. Each set will letter several different engines.

The following decal sets will letter several different Southern Pacific steam engines in Aluminum-Bronze (1898-1946) or S.P. Lettering Gray (1946-1960):

When thinking of the Pacific Electric Railway one pictures images of electric street cars. But the Pacific Electric Railway also saw significant steam engine service on its tracks. Steam service began in 1922 and ran through World War 2 and afterwards. The locomotives used on the Pacific Electric Railway were acquired directly or indirectly from the Southern Pacific and they were serviced at the Taylor and Torrance SP yards.

This decal set captures the lettering seen on Pacific Electric locomotives during this time period. The artwork for these decals was created by Paul Koehler, VP of the Southern Pacific Historical and Technical Society, (www.sphts.org) and we are pleased to be able to make these decals available through his efforts.

This decal set is a companion set to our Southern Pacific Steam Engine sets. (SJD-600a/b for HO and SJD-601a/b for O) One will need a set of SJD-600a/b or 601a/b for the engine number and class lettering to make an accurate representation of a Pacific Electric locomotive.

The color of this set is post WW2 Southern Pacific Grey but we will make them in white or aluminum-bronze upon request.
