What Font for Railroad Crossing sign


Recommended Posts

Jon

I've found this website very useful for homemade signs and transfers. Crop the photo, and upload it to this site and it will give you a number of suggestions of font, it will suggest that you buy them from their web shop, but just note down the name and google it, I have only once not been able to find something free.

I'm trying to model this crossing in Texas for a new photo module:

Can anyone suggest a suitable font to use for the crossing sign, or is there a product I should buy?

 

(Suggestions for homemade preferred, due to budget constraints!)

 

Dear Jon,

 

At the risk of asking something silly, why not use the image itself? It's a nice clean shot, reasonably square on, and could be easily photoshopped to eliminate the shadows and re-combine into the required "2 planks" for modelling purposes. What scale are you working in?

 

Happy Modelling,

Aim to Improve,

Not a silly question, but I lack the software and more importantly the knowledge to do the phototshoppery myself. I agree it looks a prime candidate, but learning how has always been on my to do list, rather than my can do list (which is considerably shorter!)

Jon you have mail

 

For anyone else who needs one Save this then Print it at 100% on 240 gsm paper or postcard, and cut two per sign needed. Paint a kitchen match white and stick this one each side at the top then trim to height.

You should have a standard crossbuck with 48" cross-arms in HO
