New Rail Alphabet Stencil

6 Weights. ADVANCED

New Rail Alphabet Stencil is based on our revival of the British Rail alphabet (available as New Rail Alphabet) designed by Margaret Calvert of Kinneir Calvert Associates in the early Sixties. Originally drawn in two versions, as a constituent part of an integral signing system, it first appeared in the United Kingdom’s National Health hospitals and, subsequently, British Rail and Danish Rail stations, followed by all BAA Airports. Now produced in six weights, Off White, White, Light, Medium, Bold and Black, with non-aligning numerals, and a subset of Eastern European characters.
