Road Sign Letter Fonts (UK)

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Prompted to do an image search by something my father said about old roadsigns being in BLOCK CAPITALS, and all new ones being in Lower Case With Capitals.... I found this free to download set of 'Transport' fonts http://www.cbrd.co.uk/fonts/ including pre and post 1964 roadsigns, 'Motorway', and the elongated letters as used to put 'SLOW', etc, on the road surface.

This is the pre '64 font for example:

I thought some of you might be interested. :D Happy Modelling!
