Three from Toronto Union Station

These are some abandoned signs from around tracks ll, 12 and 13 of Union Station, by TTR, (Toronto Terminal Railway) and VIA Rail. (what goes up doesn't necessarily come down.)

The third image with the raised letters one is an old VIA Rail sign that is rather a curiosity to me. Why the bother for such a mundane message. They would have had to buy cast acrylic letters and hand-glue them onto the acrylic substrate. Silk screening would have been a fraction of the cost. And less quirky. Look closely - The two 'e's closest to the bottom are kind of headed downhill
