Good morning to you all,
I’m on the lookout for a set of etched plates for my 99 6001, I have recently re-lettered an NWE21 using “Troeger” transfers but unfortunately the size of the LGB number plates means the number has been somewhat squashed into a small space, and the lack of relief makes the whole model look flat. I’ve scoured the internet for suitable etched replacements and have found plenty of pictures of model locos with metal plates attached but thus far no luck in finding out how to acquire them.
The closest I have got is finding this link to a past eBay sale:
Exactly the sort of thing I’m looking for!
Can anyone here please help me find out where to purchase such a set?
Kind regards
Tom

Hello Tom,
last year I got some boxes with different spare parts for Gauge I and Gauge G. There are edched number plates, but I'm not sure, what number it is. I'll have look tomorrow.
Do you have any measurements for the numberplates; please?
Peter

I have bought plates from these:


Expensive but excellent quality. I also had number plates made by MDC plates that were basically copies of the LGB originals. They are good too, and a lot cheaper.

You can see the Beckert plates on Pfiffi in the photo below.

Best wishes
