Stamps on Sunday

Decided to look through my blog's picture archive for some thematic stamps. We have bridges, and we have train tracks.

Here is a bit of extreme philately. Menai Bridge, pictured from the Isle of Anglesey, across the straits from the mainland.

For train tracks, we have the Thomas the Tank Engine miniature sheet, and a miniature sheet below in the classic locos series. 

I do occasionally use the individual stamps from miniature sheets on outgoing mail, well, because after all, they are postage stamps, but it can be psychologically difficult to crack into a sheet for the first stamp. 


  1. Thomas Stamps! My son would love to receive those. Thanks for participating.

  2. Very nice stamps
    I have recently discovered "extreme philately". I have never practised it myself, though.

    Thanks for joining Sunday Stamps today. More people = more fun!

  3. I am late... but am so happy to see you.
    I am so with you on the pain of taking out the first stamp from a nice souvenir sheet!

  4. Two classic miniature sheets, neither of which I had seen before.

  5. I hadn't seen the Thomas mini sheet, nice. I have used mini sheets for post but wouldn't be able to break that one up.
