    Vintage Railroad Posters?

    I'm sure this isn't the spot for this, but I know there are some railroad buffs on here. I'm trying to locate some vintage railroad travel posters, preferably for the lines that came west to California. I'm having trouble finding those beautiful old posters and I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. I'm not concerned about original pieces, repos are fine, actually, better because they're cheaper. Anyway, thanks in advance for the help.

    Mods, if this is better suited someplace else, please move it for me.

    Re: Vintage Railroad Posters?

    Most artwork from the early period could be found on brochures and magazine ads. Here's one I found for the UP:

    The SF&D did have Santa Fe travel posters at Main Street Station, but I don't know if these were real, or just blow-ups of typical SF advertising. Here's a shot from Davelandweb.com:



    I did find some interesting things at www.allposters.com, like this UP poster:
