One of my favorite things to make for my railroad are the typical signs along the line. Most of these were drawn up in AutoCAD and printed to scale on waterproof self-adhesive vinyl. All are made per Grande standards for “Roadway Signs”.
This one is a bit hard to see. It’s a black triangle to tell engineers to raise their flanger. These are placed at railroad crossings, switches, and bridges.
This is a whistle post to indicate to the engineer to blow the whistle for a crossing.
A snow depth gauge. this particular post has served on at least four of my railroads and gets re-painted and re-lettered every couple of years.
A speed limit sign.
A typical milepost.
A crossing sign and a no trespassing sign.
A clearance warning sign.
A no trespassing sign in Spanish. The prototype was once located at Lumberton, NM.
A yard limit sign.
