Re: [Z_Scale] Western Pacific Font Help
- WP referred to the font as a Sans Serif "Egyptian" font, but is not the
Egyptian font that you will find out there today. The closest we have found
today short of creating our own is called "Blue Highway" and even that is
not an exact match but I think in Z Scale it will be close enough.
Now that being said, Keddie, for whatever reason was not WP standard, I am
told that was more closer to "Bank Gothic"

Subject: [Z_Scale] Western Pacific Font Help
Could some of you western modelers recommend a font for a
Western Pacific depot sign? I have a model that I'm working on
that will be a fictional Western Pacific depot. The client has
sent me some fuzzy photos of the Keddie depot. The font is
certainly sans serif and the "K" meets in the
middle. I've checked out the WP Historical Society site
but didn't have any luck finding info about the station sign
fonts. Any help would be
appreciated. Thanks, Michael
