      Font

      I was wondering if any of you graphics people out there can identify the fonts used on the tender and locomotive.

       

      It would be easier for me if I could just print out what I want, instead of having to draw it up.

       

      Thanks

      David,

       

      I would think a variant of Railroad Roman. you could try Ben Coffman's Site. he has several variations.

      Kevin, I guess you cannot see the photo posted for some reason.

       

      Thanks Al.

      A more flat on picture, albeit a blurrier one too.

      Hi Dave...   Try these fonts 

      Georgia

      URWAntiquaTExbold

       

      They could be part of the RRRoman line but look more like the 2 above...

      Holler if you need them.  I can copy them to you in an email..   

       

      The "&" is a special character...  I don't think I've seen that in a "modern" font.  You may have to "draw" the "&"...   Here's a special one that I had to "draw"  

       

      I did a further search and came up with this font for the "&"...  It's very close...    Impossibilium BRK    Easily edited with Photo shop to match the tender...

      The Georgia font, at least the version I have, doesn't have the serifs on the top of the A.

      A web search shows the examples of the URW Antigua also doesn't have the Serifs.

       

      I may have to draw it out.

       

      Thanks Stan, guys.

      Nope. Me neither. Are you logged in to the https: version of LSC?  If not, that could be our problem.

       

      EDIT: Now that is weird. First time I tried opening I got Page Not Found. Posted the above then tried again and it opened. SMH

      So I spent the afternoon with MS paint, and when it came time to paste the lettering into the artwork, I discovered that its too long, and not quite the right font. But hey, its close enough for this non-rivet-counter. I just had to alter the image by compressing it horizontally a bit.

       

       

      That should be good enough to put on an HO Tyco 10 wheeler, if I ever get that far.

       

      Incidentally, MS paint behaves different in Winders 10 then it did in XP (or 7), and that caused me quite some frustration.

       

      Once I settle on the actual colours, its a simple matter to go back into MS paint and change them before I have the thing printed out.
