    Cast Iron "SW" sign

    Thanks for the information. I wish I could find a photo to confirm. Purchased two books on the TP&W and neither had a photo of the SW sign.

    Cast Iron "SW" sign

    I purchased the sign at the Kane County flea market about 10 years ago. The vendor thought it stood for "switch". Another vendor told me he thought it might have been used by the TPW (Toledo, Peoria and Western).

    Cast Iron "SW" sign

    Yes, that's true. Their signs were not oval like this one, however. The folks at Didcot assured me that it is not of GWR origin.

    Cast Iron "SW" sign

    Can anyone help me identify this sign? It is 17inches by 13 inches and is made of cast iron. I know that SW is used in Britain for "sound whistle" but two museums in the UK have told me my sign is not of British origin. [ATTACH=CONFIG]130399
