How to stop a train

Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge: Signs

I found this in a little General Store in the small village of Wiangaree. The store had lots of bits and pieces from the past so one day I’ll go back and grab a few more photos. It was a very hot day and I had to go as my scrumptious Rum ‘n’ Raisin ice cream in a waffle cone was ready.

I have no idea of the age of the sign. I am glad the green disc was still there. The shop owner didn’t have the original lamp either.

Perhaps the train looked like this one lol

Years ago my uncle got a job with the council roadworks team. My aunty rang Mum and said that uncle had been arrested for stealing items from the council works depot. We rushed over there in disbelief but when we arrived the signs were there.

  1. What an arresting title, BB. I had to stop to look for trains. I was not disappointed. 🙂 Fun post. Sorry about your uncle. My step-son stole a sign once. Cute ones are always such a temptation, I guess. I’d rather take a picture.

  2. Fun play on words with the “signs” – and my husband’s grandfather worked for the railroads for years and when my FIL passed away there were many trail artifacts and keepsakes to go through

      1. Well it was not really trains – just differ items – the coolest thing was the old train light from early 1900s.
        The guy we gave it to cleaned it up and got the lights looking good!
