I am scheduled to letter the station name on the ends as soon as the weather is suitable. It was not a sign, it was lettered directly onto the walls.

But that is paint, and that paint requires nice weather. There are several lettering jobs scheduled as soon as he weather and my time is working together. This, my former VGN caboose at Victoria and a MofW car in Roanoke. It all takes time.
