Lately I’ve been catching myself noticing bits and pieces of numbers and letterforms as I go through my day more often than usual. I’ll be walking to catch a train into town or to meet a friend and a peeling sign will catch my eye, or utility work stencils or some such. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed this habit of mine already.
Here’s a pair of letterforms that caught my eye in a rail yard. If you know your railroad history, the letters should be familiar.
