Customised Faded Wall Advertisements

“Ghost Signs” are the fading remains of hand-painted signs / adverts painted directly onto a wall. These were very common in urban environments and could often be viewed from railways. Some can still be seen today – just look carefully the next time you are in a town or city.


We have produced ghost signs for over ten years as part of our range and have been often asked if we can offer them as customised items. So, we have put together a collection of packs that you can have produced with choice of names and in some cases other details.

Printed on quality paper, each pack has three or four signs in various stages of fading / decay. These are primarily designed to be used with card kits such as those in the Metcalfe and Superquick ranges. However, with care they can also be used on models made of other materials such as those produced in resin by Hornby and Bachmann.


Easy to use. Just cut out the sign, colour the cut edge and apply to the chosen location with adhesive after matching up the brick courses.

When adding to the cart you will be prompted for the name that you require and other details if appropriate. These are usually produced and despatched within a couple of days from ordering.
