Okay. Then the Okidata OKIc711wt might be a good replacement for the old Alps printers.

Response to Not totally true.....

Given the price of the OKIc711wt at $2,500 this would be cost prohibitive for the average modeler plus the replacement white cartridges are quite expensive. However this might be viable for someone to create and sell custom decals. Toner Top Up in the UK sells one kilogram bulk toner plus the necessary replacement chips (these electronic chips count the pages and eventually disable the cartridge). It might be possible to use the white bulk toner in other laser printers but a thorough cleaning of an empty cartridge plus printing drum would be necessary.
You can see "white toner bulk bag" on Ebay. $390 for a kilogram but that would print a lot of decals.
