Those look like fairly standard data plates, commonly used on military and industrial items. Try here, maybe: https://www.dnpe.com/products/data-plates/

Wow, that's quite a transformation from the first photo. Where did you have the tag made?

I am getting ready to order the full set of switch box tags for my RS-1. I have the quote and there is a significant price break for multiple sets (1, 3, and 5+). Prior to actually ordering I will be getting samples done to insure accuracy and quality. These would be done in aluminum as my plates were such, however I know others may have brass. While my tags are specific to my locomotive given the MU capability, many tags are the same. With the correct artwork we can produce sets for probably any configuration.

Is anyone interested in going in on new plates? The 5+ set break in aluminum will be probably around $200 (27 tags - 13 side, 13 front, and 1 GE tag for the switch box) for a full set. Please PM me if interested.

PS - we can also do the GE component tags - resistors, contactors etc.

Thanks

Fred.
