Subject: [STMFC] Fonts for railroad lettering
Back in the Fifties, the period I model, the railroads used a variety of fonts, depending upon someone's choice at a particular railroad. Until recently I had relied on Jerry Glow's outstanding selection for my decal needs. Now I see the necessity of accessing a source of fonts so that I can create my own artwork on the computer. Jerry must have had such a lettering program available to him. Does someone out there know of a lettering/writing program that displays fonts of various railroads? I have created a limited amount of artwork from my writing program, but finding the variety to match the lettering of some railroads requires a specialized program. Any recommendations?
