How we make our Great Western Railway Name & Number Plates
Believe it or not, we DON'T use computer generated, or readily available fonts!
The unique G.W.R. letters and numbers were originally drawn in the early 1980s eight times full size by Ralph Jackson, cut out and pasted onto huge pieces if card, then photo reduced by his etchers in Birmingham to produce the most authentic looking G.W.R. Name and Number Plates ever produced. Five years ago Brian Wilson, a talented printer redrew the numbers and letters for me to suit more modern methods of etching, and it is those that I now use to generate new designs.
BUT - they're still not a font! Every nameplate or numberplate has to have each letter or number applied individually, positioned and coaxed into the proper angle, so that each name produced is properly positioned and curved round the backing plate to produce an authentic master tool to produce the finished products. They look authentic because they ARE authentic - I hope you agree it's worth the effort!
