"logging near Mayumba"
not sure how accurate the SG description is, my research suggests that the Trans-Gabon Railway went nowhere near Mayumba, which is on the coast. Besides which, until the 1970's Gabon had no rail system -?

The bridge on the stamp passes over the river Lom between the villages of Bilala and Mvouti, about 115 kilometers from Pointe Noire. The 6 arches are made of reinforced concrete and stand on masonry bridge piers.
