"The Denver & Rio Grande Western was chartered in 1870 to build a railroad between Denver and El Paso, but the Santa Fe beat its hand at a squabble for a mountain pass in New Mexico, which included a shootout that killed several men!".
We are pleased to offer you this beautiful authentic reproduction of an Rio Grande Railroad vintage logo advertising sign.
This 11" by 7 1/2" enameled sign is created using the same process popularized in the early 1900's. The colors are not applied as paint, instead they are finely ground glass crystals which, when kiln fired at 1350 degrees F, fuse to a heavy steel plate. Each color is applied and fired separately, creating a durable, lustrous and rust resistant product. The resulting high quality and excellent craftsmanship assures this item will also make the perfect Christmas or Hanukkah gift for that special Train or Railroad enthusiasts as well as Railroadiana memorabilia collectors!
