HO-Scale Wooden Milepost (5-pack)
HO Scale Wood Milepost package of 5: Mileposts are markers that are used to measure the distance along the railroad. Placed at mile intervals, New York Central's mile markers had a letter that represented the station where the count had started and a number that was the distance to that station.
This style of mileposts used scrap rail that was buried in the ground with a short section above ground that had a capped wooden plank bolted to the rail. Then the mileage and station number would be painted on the plank. These wooden mileposts were designed from a 1904 New York Central & Hudson River standard plan, exclusively for the New York Central System Historical Society.
Waterslide decals are supplied for you to customize your own mileposts. Paint the mileposts white then apply the decal as you would with any other model railroad waterslide decal, then seal with a coat of flat clear overcoat, then apply trackside on your model railroad empire.
