Railroad Gothic CC Font


Railroad Gothic CC is a display sans serif, a revival of Railroad Gothic typeface. It's a big, bold, and often ugly condensed sans serif font offered by American Type Founders by as early as 1900. Although refined somewhat with later offerings, Railroad Gothic in its initial release included many amateurish decisions and inconsistencies.

Railroad Gothic CC is an exploration of the imperfect. Letters are riddled with inconsistencies, corners are rounded as if cheap ink were bleeding on cheap paper. No attempt has been made to justify or codify the design decisions. It’s ugly, but that’s kind of the point.
