Here's Your Sign . . .
Author: SCKP187

I've pretty much been staying socially closed in recently and havn't shot hardly any modern trains and don't have very many nostalgia photos that I havn't already posted on TO.  While out shooting trains over the years I have gathered up a small collection of RR related street signs in various towns along the way

First off, a couple for me

Stevens Siding TX on the GSR
Stevens St next to the yard in Parsons KS


many more to follow . .

Great post Brian. Got me to thinking-a generation from now, I can hear: Daddy, who was Frisco? Or who was Katy? Or why did they name that street after a town in New Mexico?

It just hit me! "Here's your sign!" Your thread title had me scratching my head for quite a while. Then I finally remembered it's the catch-all tag line for comedian Bill Engvall of Blue Collar Comedy fame. He would describe some kind of inane situation an otherwise weak-minded human being would get into. And you always knew what he meant with the tag line by the way he said it. He came to the K-State campus for a show a few years ago and I went to see it.  Funny stuff!

Speaking of funny stuff, here's a couple more LK&W meanings I remember reading somewhere:

Little Kansas Wiggler
Leave Kansas & Walk

...................................there's your sign!
