For Mac users, I also created four different sizes of the Dutchman Ale image, half inch, 1, 2, and 3 inches wide. You can download them using the links.

Slightly different but still related, sometimes if I'm detailing a building interior, a coach or a station it's useful to have a magazine or newspaper. Ebay is a great source; just type in '1930's magazine' or '1950's newspaper' or whatever and there will be loads of pictures that can be copied, resized and printed off. Certainly in O scale and above it's worth the trouble and it's nice knowing that the magazine someone has left lying on the bench outside your station is one that was actually published in the year your layout represents, even if no one else is going to notice. In G Scale you can even read the newqspaper headlines!

Does anyone know of a good source for the kind of farm sign that used to be sold by the cattle/sheep/pig breed associations? Google finds me a few usable "registered holstein" images but I want "registered ayrshire" for the Depot Rd. farm in Rowley, whose cattle I hand-painted years ago. And yes, while the Ayrshire breed association will sell me a t-shirt or a mug, they aren't a good starting point.

Would this pic get you close, with a bit of editing in your favorite graphics program?

A young Hungarian fellow is producing these photo etched signs in 1/87 scale. He also has some very nice p.e. shop tools and cabinets in scale. He caters to US buyers so shipping is easy and affordable.

Hey Crew,

A question for all you sign aficionados: To the left of this picturesque, pastoral photo showing Georgia's fabled Louisville & Wadley RR, there is the ubiquitous (at least in the South) Coca Cola billboard.



Might anyone have a source/site/artwork/??? for this billboard? I've checked all of my usual suspects and can't find it.

Oh, and yes, somewhere buried in the weeds and growth there are rails in this 1946 photo. And that other Coke sign just beyond the loco advertises "Sunshine Cabins."

Thanks for your help, Crew, and I'll catch y'all later.

I couldn't find that image either, Steve.

I can't read the copy-- is it possible that the billboard was specific to Georgia or to the South?

I searched and searched, even tried to find your original photo with hopes of getting a location name but couldn't even find that.
Maybe a blowup of your photo can better tell what the billboard shows.
