On 1 February the first in a series of miniature sheets showing Classic Railway Locomotives will be issued, this one for locos which operated in England.
Details of the locos, etc, on our website.
Later in the month we have the postponed-from-autumn-2010 'London Stage Musicals', which is now only 8 stamps, not 6 plus a miniature sheet which was suggested last year. One can only guess at the reason for the postponement and change, but I note that no Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals are included. Full details and images on our website, including the multitude of copyright holders who will have to be approached by any FDC producers and postmark designers wanting to have their designs relevant to the stamp images.
What do you think of these stamp designs, and is it right to include commercial activities like these and Harry Potter on our stamps? Let us know - leave a comment.
