Following on from the Great
British Railways, issued 19
August 2010, this is the first of a series of Miniature Sheets that
illustrates steam locomotives in use in each of the home countries.
The intention is to look at how steam locomotives were used not just on the public railway network but also in the context of industry in such locations as factories, quarries and docks. England will commence the series to be followed by Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
Working in collaboration with railway expert Professor Colin Divall of the National Railway Museum, Brian Delaney of Delaney Design Consultants, trawled through thousands of photographs to find these contemporary photos of steam locomotives in England. The sheet is printed by Cartor Security Printing in lithography. Dimensions: 179mm x 74mm, with all over phosphor. The 41 x 30mm stamps are perf 14.5 x 14.
