Inspired by Margaret Calvert’s Rail Alphabet and Roundel’s identity Design for BR’s
Railfright, Rail Grotesk positions itself as a Neo-Grotesk with a geometric angular skeleton;
and proportions that are wider than a typical Grotesk, but thinner than a Sans. Structurally,
this creates a nice balance for both display and text use.
So fare, Rail Grotesk is still work in progress. At some point in the unknown future the font will be released licensed under public domain at the Open Foundry project. If you have any questions regarding the project write me an email.
Rail Grotesk offers an extensive character sets with all western european diacritics, numerics punctuation & mathematic.
