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 only comes in regular. But work already started on an italic, rotalic and bold version. In the future optical adjustments will be incorporated to ensure each weight can sit next to each other.
Rail Grotesk offers an extensive character sets with all western european diacritics, numerics punctuation & mathematic.
