If you make font size larger (and defaults are rather small), in order to see the speed of vehicle after you clicked on it you should make a vehicle window larger. I request it to automatically change size to fit in the whole string "Goes to STATION_NAME, 100 km/h".
This task depends upon

The stationname can be very long, so it is not feasible to make the window big enough to fit the longest possible stationame. You likely also do not want vehicle windows to automatically resize on order change.

So I guess what you rather want is, that only the stationname is truncated when the text does not fit, while the speed remains.

I agree with frosch

Could probably re-layout the window a little and fix that. The issue occurs frequently enough, and bugs me.

Patch to vehicle_gui.cpp, plus change all the lang strings. Works fine for a 2-line patch for the stations case. I tried to complete the patch, but have asserts, probably because of parameter order.
