Decal Pens

One of my customers is a train fanatic. He does the train show circuit selling his wares, and loves the pens so much that he offered a piece of one of his tables so that I could showcase my pens at the train show.

So, what to do? I am also a HO Scale Train modeller, so I had some old HO Scale decals ... so I tried to combine the two hobbies! What do you think of the results?

This first one is a Slimline made of maple and sporting black enamel and chrome accents. It is decorated for the Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo Line that actually used to run through right behind my house.

This pen is FOR SALE -- $30.00 -- Contact me via the ABOUT ME at the right hand side of this page.

Next up is one of the giants of the train world. A bloodwood slimline, with satin gold trim and decorated for the Canadian National lines that runs throughout North America.

This pen is SOLD.

Finally, the third pen in my decal experiment was this lovely spalted cherry slimline with gunmetal trim. It has been decorated for the other giant of the Canadian train world, Canadian Pacific.

This pen is SOLD.
