I'm looking for some decorative crossbucks--not to scale, but not life size either. Maybe 9-12 inches long. Del Taparo makes a nice kit but my wife has already declared it too big. I found this site:

http://www.modelrailroadsupply.com/item.asp?id=8&desc=model-railroad-crossbuck-signs

Which is the right size but made of thin plastic and I have my doubt about how it would hold up. I'd like to mount a sign big enough to get kids' attention and durable enough to not be stepped on or knocked over. 2-3 feet high.

Any suggestions

There used to be grandscale signals, but their web site is gone.

Try 1-866-315-4777

Lownote - I can make crossbuck lettering for you any size you want. e-mail me with some dimensions.

Hey Del,

Great idea to offer vinyl transfers for model railroaders. I took a look at your site, and it appear you use an adhesive that will hold up over time. I see you recommend a minimum letter size around 3/16", but I did not see a maximum image size. I know they start around 8" and go up, so it might be helpful to give people the upper limit of your vinyl cutter for something like a building sign.

Really no limits for this scale: 13" X 39" in one piece.
