Mansfield Station Sign

I was able to acquire this great piece of MB Line memorabilia over the past weekend. This station sign from Mansfield had been residing in a trailer park in Waterville and was just recently visible from the road. I contacted the owner of the park within hours of my brother discovering the sign, I purchased it.   This sign is of Great Northern Railway design and most likely dates back to the 1950's or 1960's .  Great find to add to our collection. 

Below is a Great Northern Railway Standard Plan for a typical station sign.  Drawing is dated 1960.  Drawing was then revised in 1964.
