Canadian Pacific Railway Observation Car Tail End Sign

(very rare –  bought directly from CPR in the mid 70's)

CPR exited the passenger train business in the early 1970's. They sold all of their passenger train related items through their 'in house' retail shop "CP Bygones". They closed this shop in 1978. This item was purchased from the Bygones Shop by this seller. This 'tail end' sign is a full size replica of the original sign displayed on the rear of "The Canadian", CPR's premier passenger train to Detroit from 1929-1931 prior to becoming its Transcontinental Train in 1932. It is a faithful silk-screen reproduction on 3/16" plexiglass commissioned by the CPR. The design is silk screened on the back of the sign. Size is 17' wide by 20" long. In 'like new' condition. The highlighted area around the letter 'D' in Canadian is only a reflection of the camera's photo flash.  If you decide to illuminate this sign from the rear, care should be taken that the light source is not placed too close to the sign (due to heat considerations).
