I went trough the entire 31 page thread- what a gold mine ( or should I say coal hopper ) of information.

As payback, here are some train/railroad stamp images that I don't think have been yet shown.


Peru 1871 Scott 19 5c scarlet "Locomotive and Arms"

This embossed 1871 imperforate (known as the "Trencito") is considered one of the very first commemorative stamps produced. The occasion was the 20th anniversary of the completion of a railroad line between Lima and Callao, the first railroad in South America.

Edit: Actually not true- as was stated before the first rail line in South America was in British Guyana in 1848....

Iran Scott 1935 Scott 793 1r red brown & purple
"Railway Bridge over Karun River"


For the 10th anniversary of the reign of Reza Shah Pahlavi of Iran in 1935, a nine stamp pictorial issue was released showing infrastructure advancements.

By 1939, the Trans-Iranian Railway from the Caspian Sea to the Persian Gulf was opened. It crossed the 7,000 foot pass between Tehran and the Caspian Sea. The railway had more than 3000 bridges and 126 tunnels through the Zagros Mountains.

Nicaragua 1932 Scott C68 20c blue green
"El Nacascola"


In Nicaragua, the opening of the Rivas Railroad between San Jorge to San Juan del Sur on December 18, 1932 was the reason for this five stamp lithographic issue on soft porous paper. These air post stamps were printed in sheets of 4, without gum. The stamps are poorly rendered in my view.

Paraguay - no wooden ties to spike tracks to.

Poland - don't know.

Belgium Congo - no wheels on train.

United States - smoke is blowing one way and flag is blowing the opposite way - strange wind.

If Monaco can recycle the design, I guess I get to post my new train stamp.

http://goscf.com/t/2055&whichpage=26#241835 ... postage due, issued 1960, courtesy of nethryk

No correction to the 'N' in 'MONACO'.

Q/ Is that postmark of Adam & Eve? Under divine protection, or under a palm tree?

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey
