    Default Lettering I'm doing for myself... but could share

    I've been developing this lettering for personal projects, but If anyone could make use if it... I can share.

    Yes, please do, I will probably need the lettering for a project.

    Especially if you do the "0 Injuries" graphic.

    Zero Injuries will need to be a multi-part glyph as it relies on at least 3 different colors. Unlike MAC. Windows still only does single color fonts.

    Perfect for my hometown RR's.. NECR and P&W. The nose logos are different on both.. Thank you Pete!

    Yeah, I'm debating on the central artwork part where the "&" normally goes. I need good examples and if they are not all black and white it gets tricky.

    Sparked my interest in the SLR/SLQ and NECR department there Pete!

    It would be lunacy on my part to try and create the curved text lettering for all permutations of the G&W family. I will do a few and leave people to use tools such as Illustrator, CorelDraw, Inkscape or Affinity Designer to create their own "STANDARD RAIL LETTERING" on a curve... basically, it's a *swiss* font used by nearly all railroads. So I'll do a few and call it a day. Maybe G&W, NECR, P&W, Rail Link, and the "catch-all" Choice Terminal (which covers multiple roads) and call it a day.

    No worries Pete, I actually have a set of good photos, of my own, of the SLR/SLQ logo, as well as the NECR logo, so with what you got for fonts will go well with the logos when it comes down to the nitty gritty of it. Looking forward to another tool to continue my work!
