Here's the aforementioned photos. Not exactly close enough, but it gives you
an idea of what it looks like. This is a George Elwood photo, if memory
serves me.

I believe I have a decent photo of the "F" medallion at home. It
would be a nice (albeit very tiny) piece to have made in etched brass,
though it might be a little thick in HO scale (but might just be perfect in
O scale).

Microscale's HO scale diesel detail decal sets have a representation
of these, but obviously, with no relief to them.
