With the largest collection of steam locomotives in the UK after the National Railway Museum, Bluebell Railway is a heritage line running between East Sussex and West Sussex.
STEAM tells the remarkable story of the men and women who built, operated and travelled on 'God's Wonderful Railway' and brings to life the exploits of Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
In 1937 the 100th Gresley Pacific was built by the London and North Eastern Railway, and the railway honoured her designer by giving the locomotive his name. This loco, Sir Nigel Gresley, now bearing the British Railways number 60007, was saved from scrapping in 1966 by a small group of determined men and so The Sir Nigel Gresley Locomotive Preservation Trust was born.
A preserved steam railway connecting the town of Sheringham to the picturesque Georgian town of Holt.

What are Stamp Sheets?
A stamp sheet is around A4 size and contains 10 first class stamps (the firework stamps in the Preserved Locomotives sheet example) contained in a special design. The stamps are valid for postage, but you don’t want to be ripping this up! Most people collect sheets in an album although some frame them for the wall.
This stamp sheet was automatically reserved for anyone in our Sheet club at the lowest possible price.
Frame Yours for the Wall!
This sheet would look stunning framed for the wall - a great gift for any railway enthusiast or just for yourself!
You can buy this sheet already mounted, ready to frame. That leaves you free to choose a frame YOU like and that suits your colour scheme. We use conservation board and archive tape to protect your sheet into the future. Each sheet is lovingly mounted by hand here and sent to you carefully. The mount is cream - nice and neutral, to work with whatever colour of frame you choose.
The mount will not cause any damage to your stamp sheet, allowing you to frame it for the wall without risking your investment. The sheets simply slip into the mount without need for damaging tape.
