A little run down of some French Memel stamps with different train cancels.There were several lines running during the French administration of Memel.Interburg-Memel,Pogegen-Schmalleningken,Pogegen Laugszargen (no train number in cancel);and some shorter lines.These are not easy to find on the Merson or Sower stamps.Most of what I have is in the windows below.

Hello perf12,

Very nice!

I'm used to seeing similar railway postmarks on German and Saar stamps but I've not seen them before on stamps from Memel.

I shall look out for these.

Thanks for sharing them with us.
