Signage

Jeff Young
I thought I'd start a thread where we could share sign images for printing.

I'll start with a few I've cooked up:

You need to find some good Coors and Pepsi signage.

I don't recall much Coke signage growing up. What about you, Mike Trent?

Here is the sign for Buffalo. They brought it out for the 2012 DSP&PHS meet.

Not the greatest resolution, but won't matter at HO or S scale.



(Thanks to Todd for the source image.)

Cheers,
Jeff.

You were reading my mind, Jeff. You suppose these were 24" across?

Hi Keith,

D&RGW property signs were 34” x 18”.  

Later C&S signs (1916) were 30” x 16”, but they had bevelled corners.

I’ll probably go with 30” unless I can find something more definitive.

Cheers,
Jeff.

Just found another use for the license plates.

Chester Fesmire built a lovely diorama of a car in an old boat shed with a bunch of beat-up license plates nailed on the wall:

Express signage for 1919 - 1929 (in 1929 American Railway Express became Railway Express Agency):

Jeff,

Could you reproduce a sheet of early C&S "Time Freight" placards, as from the photo posted on an earlier thread?




In photos, they appear to be 10-12 inches tall.

  I have an original of the Time Freight placard.  I would
say it is about 7" from point to point.
