    Love it.

    * Have you tried "On Washington" as a taller font? It feels a tad bit cramped in there.
    * I wonder if changing the weight of the spike, or maybe the texture will help it to read even less as a letter?

    Good work.

    Love this. A big part of me wants symmetry on that spike. Looks great.

    Woah, dude. This dominates. Having the L in there makes it readable and even helps the stake stand out more. Really diggin' the new accent underneath as well.

    My only critique is the kerning between I and L in rail. :)

    @Matthew Smith I have to disagree about the "On Washington" typeface. I think it's brilliant. However, I'm a sucker for Brandon Grotesque or Novecento or the likes there of. ;)

    Diggin the font choice for Railside. Something about the reductive drawing of the nail doesn't look right though...as though the nail head is bent.

    I know (or I should say I'm guessing) that the rail spike is modeled off a real spike; however, perhaps mimicking the shape of the serif heads of the font onto the spike head would bring a greater connection. All in all though, love the whole feel.

    This has a quicker read than the last for sure.

    Love the spike and the use of the Geared font from Lost Type co-op designed by: Ben Dalrymple. Great Work!
