    D.M.&N. Railroad Company Font

    Thank you, George! It's a rough website but a great resource. I'll see what I can find. And yes, Riccardo, you're totally right. There are many octagonal sans-serif fonts out there but finding one with the character seen on the trains is what I'm looking for. Your example "super duty closed sharp light" is an excellent base if I decide to make the numerals on my own—which is most likely what I'll be doing for the project I'm working on. I figured they must have all been hand painted but the "3" on all of the pictures I'm finding is almost identical picture-to-picture. They must have been working from some sort of stencil.

    Rebuilding Font Collection Legally?

    Well as Ralf said CorelDraw does contain a number of versions of popular fonts and even has some of the Star trek fonts. Another source of modern fonts but is a design cuts package.

  16. Someone sent me a picture of this font and wanted words using this font on a shirt. I am not sure the best terms to use to describe this font. I found gg serif regular and leftover font that looked similar. Any help would be appreciated!

  21. Thank you very much! Yes, I see that Garamond has the right italic 'h' and 'y'. I was not aware that Garamond came without the crossover on the capital 'W', but I see now that it in some versions it does. Thank you for the observation on weight, ink, and paper. That makes absolute sense. What a shame it is hard to replicate digitally. Thanks again! Roger
  22. I agree on the design completely; would never use it myself - thank you for the font, though! This will work perfectly with a little editing 😉

    searchin for road signs font

    I’m afraid you will need to ask the software vendor, and even then, I’m not sure such fonts exist: it’s likely that they are in some CAD or even proprietary format, not the .ttf or .otf that can be handled by CorelDraw. A bit more information on the typefaces in question:
