They have everything from Civil War (and before) to WW II era fonts, apparently as images on disk. I can see either printing out signs or gluing the print-out to thin cardboard and making a stencil. These fonts go really well with anybody's pre-50s layout look.

Takes some digging, but these are all free - http://www.dafont.com/
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.
