Railway Thematic Stamps / Sellos Ferrocarriles / Timbres Ferroviaires / Briefmarken Eisenbahnmotiv

Putting together any thematic collection beyond the (usually) simplistic listings of thematic catalogues is very challenging, sometimes requiring access to a significant number of catalogues, some of which may have been out-of-print for years. The lack of availability, and often high cost, of these catalogues will often discourage one from even attempting to expand into certain areas of the theme.

Our articles are very varied in nature and in their depth of coverage, but we have concentrated on areas where we feel we can provide useful 'extra' information, something that will supplement, rather than repeat, information most collectors of railway thematics will already have. We hope you find the articles useful.

Please click on the article descriptions (NOT on the images). In this 'articles' section, we no longer link to all the other articles in the left panel on each page; you will need to keep returning to this tab in order to access the available articles listed below. However, each article will open in a new tab, leaving this tab open, allowing you to return to it easily.
