Four Iconic Railway Covers
As with Royal Mail's Classic Locomotives of England issue of 2011, we have produced four separate covers for its Classic Locomotives of Scotland issue. Each cover features a set of four stamps torn from the miniature sheet, and each cover features background artwork showing the locomotive featured on one of the four stamps, created specially for us by the fantastic railway artist John Wigston. Each cover is cancelled with a specially designed postmark relevant to each locomotive, and limited numbers of each cover are available personally signed by the artist himself!
The Classic Locomotives of Scotland
Our first cover shows LNER and BR D34 Nos. 62471 & 62496 on the West Highland Line from Glasgow to Fort William and Mallaig on 09 May, 1959. The locomotives were built by the NBR at Cowlairs in 1920-21 to the design of W P Reid. The stamp has been cancelled with a specially designed Cowlairs, Glasgow postmark on the first day of issue.
