Railroadiana Items In Your Collection

Nice looking stuff guys.  I did add a Dressel switch lantern to my collection, its in pieces right now, awaiting funds to replace the missing lenses.  I really want a steam engine oscilating Mars light (like on NKP Berkshires ect) one of these days.  Could care less about a standard headlight, I want the flashing Mars light.      Mike the Aspie

These were white originally? I've seen repros and supposed originals, but they're all yellow when they're painted. Maybe that's due to what we think of crossing signs today (as stop signs were yellow for many years but many don't know that).

Here is a copy of the PRR standard drawing for these signs. Right above the title block it states that the sign shall be painted black on white.

Thanks for the info! I assumed it might have been different back in the day (like for example as stop signs were yellow and not red for many years), good to know how they're really supposed to look.

Looks great, Joe! What's going on in that huge new basement?

Nothing yet. The basement still needs to be finished. It's probably going to take a couple of years before I can get to serious work down there. Plenty to do in the meantime.
