If it was me, I'd probably have it framed.. I have some old PC, PRR and NYC 
magazine ads hidden somewhere in my collection. The PRR ads date from the 
1940s, because of the long strings of hopper cars, and the war slogan at the 
bottom. The NYC ad features 20th Century Limited, and dates from the 1950s. 
I'm thinking about having both framed, and hung in the RR room...
