Just happened to have this shot I posted on the H.A.M.B. - it's from Eaton Rapids, MI in 1960. Hope it helps.

I built the sign today, turned out good. I printed the Zephyr signage on photo paper. The sign itself is sheet plastic with a foam core.

Glad I could help a little bit! Here's a thought: Have a truck pulling in carrying the new-style Zephyr sign while a 1/25 scale worker lights up a torch to cut down the weathered one... :D

This is really cool and I'll be following along. Love the direction this is going. The new roof shape looks so much better for a Zephyr station.

If you're still looking for toilet fixtures, here's a 1/24 set from eBay - sink, toilet, tub.  There are others available - 1/24 is half the regular dollhouse scale of 1/12, so some dollhousers build in that scale.  I've also seen these, or something very similar, in Hobby Lobby.

So I've finally got some Zephyr decals made, time to get the station back on the bench.
