Austria drew attention to the 11th Congress of bridge builders in 1980 with a stamp showing an ancient and a modern bridge construction.



(Hi, Alexey, Yes it was a lovely vacation in L. Do you know what happened to Jose's scans - I can no longer see them on my screen. K.)

A very similar design was used in 1974 for a stamp of Finland which honors their department of road and bridge engineers.

In 1980 Guatamala celebrated 100 years of rail service with a tall viaduct. I found the scan of the viaduct at Mazatenango, and it looks quite similar to the one on the stamp.

In 2014, Germany celebrated 175 years of rail service; the first stretch being between Leipzig and Dresden. The drawing was done by C.E. Bommer and shows the original viaduct in Dresden-Trachau, which was replaced in 1898-99. The photograph shows a locomotive from the Leipzig rail museum on the viaduct in Leipzig-Wahren.

The viaduct in the souvenir sheet issued by Belgium in 2014 "The World of the Train" dominates the picture and almost makes the locomotives look small. Would they be diesel-powered with all that white smoke/steam?

These stamps are the first official Belgium stamps with ‘augmented reality'. When you hold the page with the stamp before smartphone or tablet, you will travel through landscapes on your computer screen https://www.altaplana.be/dictionary...of_the_train

Belgium celebrated 100 years of rail service in 1935. The initials J.D. indicate Jean De Bast, the great Belgian engraver (1883-1975). This stamp was used for sending packages by rail.



(Hi, Alexey, I had heard of this special feature, but since I do not have a smartphone or a tablet, I can't try it out!. K.)

The 5-span Aberfeldy bridge crosses the Tay river just north of Perth in Scotland. It is one of the many bridges that General Wade had built in the 18th century to promote travel and trade with the villages in the Highlands. Design by William Adam, completed in 1733. Stamp:1968

And, not to be forgotten, to move troops more swiftily to crush eventual jacobite risings...

The Glenfinnan viaduct, crossing the River Finnan, even carries the Jacobite steam train. The line was opened at the beginning of the past century and is now popular among tourists (and H. Potter readers?). It was constructed of mass concrete, and has 21 spans of 50 feet. Stamp 2003. (Thanks Cursus, the Glenfinnan monument is down at the waters of Loch Shiel. K.)

The Robert Adam (1728-1792) bridge at Compton Verney House, an 18th-century country mansion at Compton Verney near Kineton in Warwickshire, England. The House is now a famous art gallery. The 300th birthday of landscape architect Lancelot Capability Brown (1716-1783) is honored in a set of 8 stamps, 2016.

The second stamp of the 2016 set honoring Capability Brown, this one with the bridge across the Glyme at Blenheim Palace. This huge estate house is located in Oxfordshire and is the home of the Marlborough/Churchill family.


(Hello Alexey, Indeed a good photograph of the Hohenzollern! The Cathedral doesn't even have any scaffolding, which it usually does. Do you know for what occasion Japan issued the stamp? K.)
