1.PC "To Station" sign from Altoona.
Rectangular7.5 X 32 inch sign made of fiberboard (masonite-type material). Signis neatly hand-painted with a PC green background and white letteringand edge border. This was found in the baggage room of the Altoonastation by a Conrail track gang supervisor. I am guessing that thiswas made for use with the infamous "temporary station"(trailer) at Altoona & then was retired when the new station wasdone, but it's a guess. Good condition with some minor paint loss atvarious places as well as on the white border (some green showingthrough at border). $95
