    The Winslow, AZ station, with an architecturally reserved Santa Fe logo adjacent. Winslow was also the location of Fred Harvey's La Posada Hotel opened in 1930. Closed since 1957, it was reopened in 2000 and sits adjacent to the mainline. You can see it behind the units. [Below slides from June 1997]

    That sign could be replaced with "If you can read this sign, you've already derailed...":ROFLMAO:

    That's the railroad equivalent to the Jeep stickers printed upside down: "If you can read this, please roll me back over"...:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Riding through Katy, Texas on the old Katy (MKT) railroad on November 5, 1994. Not long after this excursion, the UP closed the line between Houston and Katy and ripped up the track. I believe these were the last passenger cars to travel on those tracks.

    L&N station sign in Knoxville, January 1980. I think it remains in place today and would make a dynamite time exposure.

    October 1990, L&N depot signs at Lewisburg, TN. The splendid little depot with all of it's architectural embellishments has since been demolished. :(
