    Does anybody have or know of any caboose car body stencils for cabooses? I am looking for all of them, the "Ship it on The Frisco" stencil and the Coonskin logo stencil. We are going to paint 1291 with the "ship it" scheme and while graphic companies are capable of using decals to letter our cabooses, I would much rather use original Frisco paint stencils for a more authentic appearance. There have to be some somewhere on the planet because the Caboose at Granby Mo is an old NP caboose and it was painted brown after it arrived in Granby, and the FRISCO logos on it were definetely painted on with original Frisco stencils. Regarding the "ship it" stencils, I have noticed two different font variations on original Frisco cabooses, and either one will be fine. I will add a pic of the NP caboose at Granby and you can see the use of the original stencils. A phone call to Granby MO yielded no known information on the painter of the caboose.

    Paul, I will get the name of the folks who redid the caboose in Bentonville last year. I suspect it is same who did the original job in 90's. He had big sheet with perforations and used something like a ponce wheel to create outlines. Based in Bentonville.
