I am currently making "stickers" for the digital versions of my favorite official Train, Town and Space models from the late 70's, 80's and early 90's and was wondering if it is known which fonts were used?
Currently, I am specifically looking for the train fonts such these for example. 

https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/cat...=0#T=P&C=0

But besides that I would be grateful for any other main font types one might be aware of that were used during that time period.
I figured if I am going to make the parts I should do it right first time and noticed that some parts in the LDraw Library have used these or similar fonts. 

I did some quick searches in google and in the forum but couldn't find what I was looking for. Perhaps this is a dumb question, but I am pretty new to parts authoring Confused and figured I might ask here before asking in the parts authoring section of the forum.

Thanks!

Do you mean fonts for the logos? Or just the general text ("7727" and the weight/load specs)? I made stickers using a few of these logos here, but I didn't use fonts, just vector graphics if I could find them. As for general text, I find that Helvetica or Arial usually are very close matches, being Swiss-inspired fonts that would have been at hand for the folks at TLG to use. There are also text primitives available in LDraw that can be used for much of this general type-work. They are also based on Helvetica.
