As many of us, I suppose, I have sort of a mishmash of screwdrivers of not the greatest quality. I'd like to have a set of screwdrivers that are of good quality and can properly handle the range of screws we deal with when servicing our locomotives and rolling stock. Can you recommend a set?

Actually, a model railroader, or "toy train" operator should have two screwdriver sets:

1) A JIS (Japan Industrial Standard) set for working on Chinese/Korean models, available from Granger.

2) A set from Wiha, which contain both flat blade and Philips.

For my model trains I use Facom (slotted), old (USA made) Craftsman (larger slotted and Phillips), and Whia (Posidriv for JIS), You will need JIS screwdrivers for anything made the other side of the International Date Line. Vessel is the best JIS screwdriver, but Whia Posidriv is a good substitute at about half the price and more more readily available years ago). You will never need the larger sizes in all these brands. Just buy the sizes you will use.
