HO Scale U34CH Details
Posted by AEM7AC929 on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 12:05 PM

In January, I acquired an Atlas U34CH off of eBay. The unit was in the NJDOT/EL Bluebird paint scheme.

Recently, I have started making the unit into the post-1985 NJ Transit style bluebird units. Just today I applied the NJ Transit logo to the nose.

One problem however- my model is still numbered in the 3300 series. Does anyone know where I could find good decals for renumbering into the 4100 series?

    Not being overly familiar with NJT I can only suggest you investigate set PMD-010 put out by Prime Mover Decals who along with this set for NJT U34CHs, does a lot of EL stuff.  Also, if all you want to do is re-number your unit, take a look at the alphabet sets offered by Micro-Scale and, Highball Graphics.  Both can be accessed via links from the Great Decals website.  Also, if it is simply a numbering job and you can't find the proper size in HO, take a look at the N scale offerings.  Some of the larger characters in N might be closer to what you need.  Good luck!

We need a U34CH in HO Scale.  

Atlas could do a new release.
