GER GREAT EASTERN RAILWAY Loco Graphics - from 1882-c1923
3 styles of Lettering - 2 pairs of each
GER GREAT EASTERN RAILWAY - Covering 3 styles of lettering from 1882-C1923 this sheet has 2 pairs for each of the 3 periods : 4.5 inch size (0.83mm over face scaled) lettering was used from 1882-1885 on Blue Liveried Engines. 6 inch size (1mm over face scaled) lettering was used from 1885; From 1890 the GER Blue Livery was discontinued on goods engines which were then painted black - hence the black counter shading on this lettering would have been invisible. Owing to the size, these transfers are printed in 4 colours; Simplified 2 colour transfers in 6 inch size lettering was used from 1915 until some time after the 1923 grouping on Grey Liveried Engines as a wartime measure. 2 pairs of each design are included on this sheet. WITH MANY THANKS TO THE GER SOCIETY WHO ASSISTED IN THE RESEARCH FOR THESE TRANSFER PRODUCTS.
