HO-Scale Concrete Milepost (5-pack)
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. These cast concrete mileposts were painted white and have a recessed station letter and mileage that was painted black. Typically NYC's mileposts had the same station letter and mileage on both sides of the sign. However there are known examples where different station letters mileage was used, one side representing the beginning of the line and the end of the line.
These cast concrete mileposts were the standard from at least the early 1900's through the late 1950's when a metal sign on a stamped sign post became the standard. But many examples survive along the right-of-way, some right beside their replacement.
Designed from surviving New York Central trackside examples and 3D printed by Shapeways, these are exclusive products 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.
