Old neon sign from the former Chicago, Aurora & Elgin interurban railroad.

I took this photo, during an August 2006 visit to The Illinois Railway Museum in the town of Union Illinois USA.

In case You didn't know it...aside from the large collection of steam locomotives, early diesels, electric streetcars and vintage buses...the museum also has a fine collection of classic North American neon signs from the historic past.

This example from the long defunct Chicago, Aurora And Elgin electric interurban railroad, has been lovingly restored.
