What do your station signs look like?

What we really need are some ALCO type "B" equalized trucks and wheel sets. Do you know anyone who provides those?

Re: Green Bay Wi National Railroad museum

There is a very old live steamer set in a garden outside the building, a gorgeous 4-4-0 in 1/8th scale in the lobby, a grand scale "sort of" Hudson in the museum store being used as a display, and a builders model of the Aerotrain in the museum itself.
