Looking for the font used in the rio grande logo. I know I have seen this before I just can't remember where.

What?

“rio grande” is Titanschrift or Herkimer Bunrab as an alternative.

Originally a Wagner & Schmidt type first cast around 1905, once known as Stanley. Jan & Mike have posted links to Amsterdam's 1926 version, Hercules, and Wagner's 1927 revision, Titan.
Don't miss the alts with bunny ear ascenders [& descenders]. Not on the rio grande sign, but an entertaining art deco splash!
