Re: PC: Re: PC Mt. Kisco station sign

I know what you are talking about

I was at CP SLOPE in Altoona PA back in May.  On the interlocking control
shack there is a sign in the standeard CR Blue Back ground with white
letters bolted to the side of the structure, but if you look close enuff
under that is a wood sign with a Green background and a white border
around it,  I can only imagine that that is the PC sign for SLOPE.  THe
new building at the RR Memorial Museum was not open so we checked out the
"old" building.  Inside the display area was a PC-Style Lettered sign with
a green background that said ALTOONA on it so I figure that was the
Altoona Station sign from PC days
