Anyone got a standard drawing for C&S or D&RGW crossbucks?
The ones that come to mind are in Como. The one on the City side of the crossing is a wood post with wood bucks. The vertical post has a black and white diagonal safety stripe. The down buck (from the City side) says 'Railroad Crossing' and the up buck says 'Look out for the cars.'
On the South Park side of the crossing, the vertical post appears to be steel, and I cannot tell if the signs are wood or metal. If the signs are wood, I would of course make the post out of brass; if they are metal, this might be a nice 3-d printing project.
I have the handy, jiffy Banta Crossbucks kit. His decals say, 'Rail Road' and 'Cross ing,' which he points out that one of the words need not have a space between to span the post. Also, his posts are rectangular, about 6" x 12", and I got some square material, about 8"x8" because that is what I thought I saw in one image. The Como buck appears to be a 6x12.
Any help or photos would be much appreciated. Leadville has a number of crossings, and I figure there needs to be some crossbuck variety. Sadly the valuation sheet has lots of detail regarding the road crossings, boardwalks, and culverts at each street, but no sign info so far as I can tell. Also of note in the Como photos is the highway sign for Colorado 9. Seems like I need to figure out how to create some highway signs too.
After some thought Keith, and reviewing a few of the back page threads concerning your Leadville Addiction I wonder if there were any such signs, given the number of crossings and tracks crisscrossing town.
Certainly I can't see any in this picture, and it shows a couple of streets....not even one of those single board "Railway Crossing" or "Railroad Crossing" or "Look Out For The Cars" types.
If that link doesn't work it's in the Company Store part of the site, under "Data Sheets." If you go to the store you'll see the crossbuck diagram as the illustration for the entire set of sign drawings.
did you notice in the full view that there were Crossbucks protecting the Midland crossing in the background?
The other one I remembered....but couldn't find earlier... in the GLBeam coll. That odd Road sign may be County or auto club specific though.
