I recently bought this sign in the UK and am trying to identify where it originally came from. I suspect it either came from the UK rail Network or a European ferry terminal. The reason I believe it may be from a ferry terminal is because the seller also had a sign in an identical style that read 'Newcastle - Hull' which are both UK ferry terminals.
From looking online the font looks like a form of Gill Sans but I've not found an exact match. The 't' and the 'a' seem particularly distinctive. Any help is much appreciated, as I'm no expert on fonts.
