Mark,

Will Menards have a booth at York this year? I would love to get an accessory or one of these sigs from you guys.

Toby: That's so cool.
Dwight: Yeah. 
Toby: Wow, I'd love to take a look at that. 
Dwight: Yeah, it's just a run of the mill slaughter house, but sure anytime.
Toby: Well, you know, 'cause of the trains.

Menards couldn't make one for the SOO?  That don't seem right.

Soo what?

-Greg

Greg - here is the answer to your question:  

Basil - as Menards is based in the midwest and have done a number of midwestern railroad names on past offerings I'm sure it's only a matter of time before they conjure up a Soo Line sign.

Does anyone else think they are to large?

Yes I do. They are about 2-4x as large as they should be on a typical O scale layout. The signs look to be about 5" x 5" which would make them 20' ft square in O scale. As they tower over the tops of the engines and rolling stock, they would be good looking on the large stations and structures

Jimmy, IMO if Menard's intended these signs to be used on an O-gauge layout, then Yes, they appear to be too large to me.  If they were intended to be displayed as decorations around the train room, then they may be ok...or maybe even a bit too small. 

It probably doesn't matter though as I'm sure they will sell.  Menard's has been knocking it out of the proverbial ballpark with just about every item they release!  

As we all know, they have cultivated a very loyal following...at least from what I see and read here on the Forum.  So loyal that I sometimes find myself thinking, "wow, these guys will buy anything that says 'Menard's' on it" when I read through some of members' posts/comments in these weekly product announcement threads...LOL!  Good for Menard's...they are certainly on a roll!

Enjoying this Great Hobby in memory of Dad & Pop...the "original Joe's" responsible for my interest in trains!!
