Up for bid is what I believe to be the only set ever known to exist of Authentic and Original Dayton Union Station Porcelain Sign Letters

The letters are 18" Tall and 2" Deep and they weigh from 4 lbs to 8 lbs each

The letters are Porcelain front and back

I used the 1 Qt. Castrol Oil Can as a reference to the the size of the letters

These are well built Letters

They have heavy duty attachment brackets built in as shown

They could use a good polishing

Dayton Union Station Opens in 1900

1903 The Wright Brothers travel from Dayton Union Station To Kitty Hawk Via Rail

Mid 1960's The Original Station was Demolished and a smaller station replaced it, this is when I believe the Sign you are looking at was put in Place

1971 Amtrak comes to Dayton, all trains lines were discontinued except for the National Limited Line

1979 National Limited was Discontinued

1987 The Dayton Union Station was brought down by the city of Dayton and the Sign was saved at that point

Now here in 2012 they are on the auction block and your chance to own em
