Re: Coach Numbering Font

Alan McMillan

Hi Markus

I didn't think I knew enough about this to say, but I went to a font download site to get the Calibri font only to discover that it dates from 2005! Clearly not what was used on coaches during the SBB + CFF era. If SBBH have used it on their vehicles, I'm shocked too!

The DIN 1451 Mittelschrift DB Regular font is the correct one although I did have to tweak the figure 1 and 7 to get it absolutely right according to period close-up photos I have of number panels.
