**SPECIAL REQUEST**

CZ Enamel Vestibule Step Plaque Original Artwork

A car owner has requested help from anyone out there who may have original artwork for the plaques that were fixed to the CZ railcar steps. These are the small oval signs, one saying "Watch Your Step" and the other says "California Zephyr" as seen below.

This artwork is needed for reference on a project, and you can certainly retain ownership.

If you have this original artwork, or know where such can be found, please use our contact form to let us know.

*Thanks to Loren Dunlap for these photos
