This 2008 domestic rate stamp of private courier New Zealand Mail (NZM) features a steam engine-themed stained glass window from the old train station in Dunedin. This train station is said to be the most photographed place in New Zealand. It was completed in 1906.

Note that on the stamp that both rampant lions are facing in the same direction, but they are back to back on the photo of the actual window.

In February of 2001, Spain issued this computer-vended stamp to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the first Madrid railway. Pictured is locomotive 120 which made the first trips. It is Michel #50.

In December of 2001, Spain switched to euro currency. When the stamp machines were reconfigured for euro use, these labels were used again. They are Michel #63.

From the ateeme.net website, "The works began in 1846 and the official inauguration was February 8, 1851 in the Embarcadero (railway station) of Alocha. In the inaugural trip a special coach was reserved to Queen Isabel. On the next day the service was opened to the public."

In April of 2001, Spain issued two computer-vended stamps celebrating the 150th anniversary of railroads in their country. This one, Michel #54, depicts Locomotive 030-2577 of M.Z.A. (Railroad Company from Madrid to Zaragoza and Alicante). This model was built from 1884 by the firm Richard Hartmann of Chemnitz, Saxony in Germany, which supplied M.Z.A. with 32 such locomotives.

The label was vended from machine #4211 in Molina de Segura, Murcia in the southeast of the country.

The second stamp was sold after the conversion to euro currency in December of 2001. It is Michel #67. It was sold from machine #1293, but the town/location is not given in this case.

In March of 2001, Spain issue this computer-vended stamp (Michel ATM #51) picturing Locomotive 141 2040 of the North Spain Railway Co. This is an American made model from 1918.

From ateeme.net, "During the First World War the North Spain Railway Company contacted the U.S. ALCO (American Locomotive Company) because of the great difficulties in obtaining materials from their usual French suppliers...The ALCO's were locomotives of 2 cylinders...with 1800 CV of power."

In December of 2001, when the stamp vending machines were re-calibrated for euro use, the labels were re-used. They are Michel ATM #64.
