Signs

Dear all
Does anyone have any ideas where I can find on the web, SR signs such as "Do
not cross the tracks" etc. So that I can download and print them?
Thanks
Rob

Not at all- that's Fotopic.... The reduced size images have right click disabled, because in my experience the results of printing that reduced by Fotopic, and reduced by me sort of image, are disappointing.. Click on the 'full size' image, and the branding disappears and a much better image is available. The originals I have are nearly all at least 2500pix in width some as much as 4000pix, if you need any of those there is a leave me a message box, ensure you mailbox is large enough ( 2MB per image) and I'll quite happily send them to you. They are there for modellers such as yourself, that's why I collected them- I print them off , scaled to 00 gauge and using long-life inks in the printer they are superb, and I can change them regularly to make the layout look fresh. I was careful to maintain the aspect ratio of the original and on most there is a tiny border around each to be trimmed off after printing.

Click on the image you want to get the larger version, go to file save and save as a complete webpage (using IE6 The images will be saved in a folder from where you can copy them out and do what you wish with them. Keith

On a similar subject, does anyone know of a site that has some images for download of the old posters often found on station buildings. You know the sort of thing, often advertising "bovrill" and metal polish etc..

Google on "vintage advertising", and sort through the links.... Be careful, you'll get sidetracked, er, distracked, er, I mean enticed away from your main search very quickly... :-)

Thanks for that comment Chris, They are carefully Photted so as to get the correct aspect ratio, and perspective, so they should print at any reasonable scale....be it 'G' or 'N'.. Save the full size image ( right click enabled on those) as that's the image as I uploaded it- use the one that Fotopic generates as a preview only. If you need the original leave me a message via the message box on the front page, but be warned they could be up to 3MB is size. There's lots of other stuff like station signs and branding that should help anyone attempting a modern day layout, or detailing their latest model. Printing them out using long life inks, and glossy paper gives very realistic representations of enamelled signs..

Uhmm... err yeah ... I see what you mean about being side-tracked :-)
Thanks for the suggestion, I now have a selection of thumbnails that should suit the period we're modelling - does anyone have any idea of the approx size these posters would of been ??
Cheers

If you search the catalogues of previous auctions over at

then there are hundereds of images of old posters, and the item descriptions give the original sizes.

Sir. One gets so cynical about the commercialism on the internet that such an attitude is very welcome.
Thanks.
