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]

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.

Speaking of drum heads.
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.
