I spent some time looking for this. The curved 'l' should help, and it looks very conventional, but I'm having no luck.

Anyone else have an idea?

Just to prove I have been trying, this is similar to Jeremy Tankard's "Bliss", but the shape of the C is wrong and the heaviest Bliss weight isn't quite this heavy. Also found a font at MyFonts called "Haptic" which had sort of the right shapes, but has rounded strokes. Prelo, also at MyFonts, was similar, but had a straight 'l'.

The curved l and two-story g is a rare combination, and add the straight stem 'a', and I can find almost nothing similar. This suggests either a font not carried at MyFonts, or a font with an alternate letter that is not showing up in the test drives.

Anyone else?

there's a giant billboard by my train stop. i'll get a better picture of it when i can. at first brush i thought it was milo sans or fedra, but obviously that's not the case.

Can it be The Sans with a custom l?

It could be Gloriola. Unfortunately the font is not available temporarily.
