Anyone have any idea what this font is? It was used on Penn central locomotives. Brian
I would say it is more probably handpainted. Do you have a picture of the whole wagon? Did you notice what the numbers on other trains look like?
If your looking for train fonts this is the spot: www.railfonts.com. I've looked through all of them, and I think the closest to yours is the Egyptian lettering from Southern Pacific. The 1 is the only character that is radically different. Also notice the 4 is very dark like your sample. http://www.railfonts.com/cgi/font-store/fontshop.cgi?ACTION=thispage&thispage=page12.html&ORDER_ID=124557260 Randy
4, 2 and 5 look very grotesque, but the 1 is more geometric sans. Bizarre...
