F is for Fonts!

Century Gothic! I love Century Gothic.

Around the corner from this photo, once again we see bicycle parking at Chatham Station.

And, uh, being an amateur font nerd, I am very excited that these labels are in Century Gothic! That’s kind of unusual for signs in general, but it’s especially unusual for NJ Transit signs.

The station signs for most of the Morris/Essex line are some weird indeterminate serif font; the closest I can figure is some indeterminate variation of Garamond.

Weird indeterminate NJTransit serif font!

New Providence is the only one I’ve seen that uses a nice standard Helvetica.

Helvetica!

Is there a rhyme or reason for any of this? No idea. Just makin’ observations.
