Railroad Signs on Front Lawn

We were driving on County Route 7 just east of Avoca (after seeing the Caboose Motel) when we ran across a great collection or railroad signs, a crossing gate, crossing lights, etc. in a resident's front yard. A lot of time and trouble was taken to make this nice display.

This town is train-crazier than most... Avoca is where you'll also find the Caboose Motel.
