2004 GB - PP 355 - Classic Locomotives


  • PP 355 - Issued 2004

    Unmounted Mint

This special set of 6 stamps plus miniature sheet 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.

The designers Harold Batten and Mike Denny, chose their subjects to represent a range of locomotive types, ages and railway companies and photographer John Wildgoose travelled the UK to capture the locomotives in their full glory.
