    Default Train fonts/lettering

    Hello.
    I'm trying to texture my locos with realistic fonts and letterings. Does anyone know where to find more stuff like this for steam locos?

    Among others, I use these freeware fonts for my work; top to bottom:

    -Serif

    -Serif bold

    -Chaparral pro bold

    -Bookman old style semi bold

    -Bodoni MT Bold


    You should have no problem finding them on the internet; if you can't find it, tell me

    Greetings, Javier

    Here's a couple of safe font sources.

    If you want to buy the actual fonts, check here:

    http://railfonts.com/

    for free fonts : https://www.dafont.com/

    I said safe because many font sources have malware embedded in the packages. I know someone who ended up with an infected machine because of this. These sites are clean.

    Oh... I reported the SPAM.

    It's not unusual. Moderators clean up a lot of forums just like this one. It takes time to get a moderator to delete the post(s).

    This is why we don't put our email addresses in the forum posts. Bots scavenge the forums looking for them to send spam and malware to.

    and some of that time is because the moderators may be in a different time (and even date) zone on the other side of the globe.
