Johnston Journeys at the museum depot
 
On Saturday I went on the Johnston Journeys tour at the museum depot. I
strongly recommend it, and tickets are still available:

I put some photos on the intertubes:

Forgot to say, very surprised by the serif version!

There are examples of it at Sudbury Town station.

I was also surprised by the square dots, not diamonds, in the colon and
in the semicolon (which exists on proof sheets but I don't remember ever
seeing on real signs). There's even an example with *round* dots on a
hand-painted bus destination board. On TfL's website the colon has
diamond dots:

Presumably this change was made in Johnston New and not reverted in
Johnston 100. Good, I think I prefer it being more consistent with the
tittles in i and j.

But I have noticed that the diamonds in what I assume are Johnston 100
on the website aren't just rotated squares, they have concave edges. I
think they're ugly. You'll see this if you blow up the text "Live
arrivals at ..." on the page linked above.
