Hello and welcome to Pacific Models. My name is Ian Wilson and I design and produce the railway models and accessories featured on this website.

I am the track plan illustrator for British Railway Modelling Magazine, originator of the Prototype Models range of cardboard construction kits, and a former director of Slaters Plastikard. So my model making pedigree goes back a long way!

USA Diesel Number Boards

If you plan to customise a locomotive with the number of your choice, the trickest part is patching together four numberboards from a decal sheet. Our range of diesel numberboards for Eastern Roads gives you the whole class, with variations in style where appropriate.
