Railroad Gothic Pro is a condensed, sans serif typeface. The original Railroad Gothic was produced by Ludlow in the early 1900’s, and fell under the care of International TypeFounders, Inc. when ITF obtained exclusive licensing rights to the Ludlow Collection. Steve Jackaman digitally engineered it in 1997.
Two decades later the new version was released, and it boasts a 50% larger glyph set, language support for Latin 1, Central, and Eastern European languages, and a Cyrillic character set.
Railroad Gothic Pro is reminiscent of typefaces used in 1900’s railyards, hence the name.
