BRYMSTON RR – EPISODE 10 – THE NAME
Following on from yesterday’s Perspex screen post it got me thinking about the presentation of the module and the need for its name to be displayed. When it is all assembled the pelmet gives a front facing depth of 65mm, so, what I envisage is white lettering on painted black background. Letters about 50mm high.
I have been playing with fonts and as it was a mandated font for Railroads to use I was thinking it should be in Railroad Roman.
That said there is some leeway as there were umpteen versions of it with some railroads customising their own version.
A silly bit of me thinks it should be in the D&RGW Flying Grande style
I suppose another alternative would be to use a Stencil as things were often lettered with them
My question for you all is how to do the lettering in a professional looking way. That rules out me hand painting it or using stick on house letters as I’ll never get them on straight.
