Nice font - or it would have been, but it lacks proper kerning (particularly for the caps - write UNDERGROUND and you'll see what I mean), rendering it almost useless for serious work.

Nice font but not for mac user.... sad

Nice try at emulating the Johnston font (Transport for London font) however not exactly right. The left bottom corner of the 4 is pointed in the Johnston font but flat in this font and as above the kerning is out so unable to use professionally.

The current Transport for London typeface is 1979's New Johnson, whereas the creator of this piece says it is based on it's predecessor, 1915's Johnson. This may explain any discrepancy. While I agree that the kerning is out, the errors are more pronounced when using all uppercase. As for using for serious work, even TfL don't use it for large tracts of text. You got the file for free, so use it for titles/impact only and spend ten minutes manually adjusting the kerning to look right.

It is not the TARDIS font (that is Gill Sans) but it is very close.
