CN Sublettering Font
Author: nydepot

The large sublettering CN uses on its locomotive cab sides - IC, BLE, etc. What font do they use? Their specs call for Humanist 777 but I'm not sure if they use that on the locos. It's kind of Helvetica-like but so is Humanist 777. Thanks,

Sorry, I can't help much, but I know from experience that railroad fonts are usually unique and home grown in the drafting department (old days) or developed by ad agencies.

Thanks. Not realy anymore. This sublettering is new since the 2000s.
