These turned out so good I have to post a photo before finishing and paint are done. It's mounted on Peco N Streamline Code 80 flex track (the rail measures 0.080" tall) - time to switch to hand-laid code 40!

I have a little trouble guessing the scale (not an inch person Wink , but it looks pretty small indeed! Do share a pic after painting!

Crikey! You call that very small? T gauge (1:450) is very small:

Dude!! That stuff makes my eyes water.

Those would be good candidates for custom pad printing. I don't think it's too expensive any more, especially for something hard to accurately paint as 1:450.

Here are instructions on how to cut the wheel stops from the 32-piece sprue.
A precision sprue cutter like the Intermountain BB-1015 or Micro-Mark #82393 is the best tool to cut the parts from the support framework. http://www.micromark.com/tweezer-sprue-cutter-despruing-twee zer,8012.html
