Commuting with Helvetica

Wow, Queensland Rail have recently upgraded their corporate branding - but it's only now that they seem to be rolling out the new station identities:

New Station Signage

And, they seem to have chosen Helvetica for the station signage as well - one of my favourite fonts. Who would have thought we would finally get some good design in our every day commuter life?

Strangely enough, some stations which have recently received new signs have had a similar version - but in italics! Quite bizarre. I'll update the post when I can take a picture.

I swear to god, if you can figure out what's with the italics/non italics on signs thing, I'll give you my first born child*. This has been bugging me like hell for some time.
