In addition to the evocative Classic Locomotives stamps, the border of the miniature sheet features the livery of the train companies represented on each stamp. The sheet measures 190mm x 68mm.

This special set of 6 stamps printed se-tenant in miniature sheet format commemorates the 200th anniversary of the first journey on rails by a steam locomotive in February 1804. The inventor and engineer responsible for this achievement was Richard Trevithick. This classic issue features a variety of different types of locomotive travelling on preserved railways around the UK, with the thrill and energy of the steam further enhanced by the 60 x 12mm format.
