HI, I am someone new, have some items & need some info

ModelRailroadForums.com is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.

I found these signs which I found out they are A.R. Fergusson model train metal & tin railroad signs. They were manufactured in Buffalo, NY (couple hours from me, I'm in Syracuse NY). I know they are fairly old and can't find much info on them. Wanted to make sure I list them correctly. I don't like to put out any information that I am not sure of. I see that alot on other websites, particularly on eBay. You find a lot of people that copy other people's listings instead of looking up the correct info. Or that have no interest. To me it is laziness. I have had others copy mine and use my stock numbers ...lol like it is part of the item. Anyways, I am going to post the photos. If anyone knows anything about them, please feel free to post it to me. Thanks in advance.

Glad you found it!
Whats the story on them, neat looking stuff.
Yeah I would like to know too. I've never seen the likes.

EDIT: From the ebay listing ...
