Evolution of Railroad Logos

I ran across a nice entry in designer Christian Annyas' blog about the evolution of railroad logos. There is a nice cross section of logos representing many different railroads showing how the designs have gone from wood type to modern styling. (I'm sure your favorite railroad is represented.)

Kansas City Lines 1940
Also on this blog is a nice series of posts on the typography of the Sanborn Fire Insurance maps.

Brooklyn Suburbs 1895
