Belgium is a Mecca for philatelic railway enthusiasts.

This is the 30c from the 1945-46 railway parcels series. The designs show all sorts of professions within the railways. This is the engine driver.

Can you train collectors help our New Issues man out with the ID of a loco/locos on a Russian MS?

'RUSSIA 175th anniv of Railways in Russia, issue of a 50rouble miniature sheet on Sept 30, 2012

All the web entries I can find on this all reproduce the original RUSMARKA information, which
gives idents for the high speed train, and the three locos/trains on the lower border,
but fails to name the steam locomotive at upper left and the steam locomotive on the stamp.

It is unclear whether these unidentified two steam locos are the same or not. The one on stamp appears to be 2-6-0'

To me, the one on the stamp looks like the one at the bottom left, but I'd like confirmation for that too...

I don't collect train stamps as a theme, but I do have some train related philatelic examples.

While not a mainstream train as such, more of an unmanned postal underground delivery train, here is a GPO cover from 1967.

GPO train

1968 Luton postmark.

Train postmark

This letter hasn't got a train on it, but it has had an eventful train journey back in 1935. The letter was damaged by fire on the Frankfurt - Berlin train (train D45) and had this label attached by the postal authorities in Leipzig stating the fact. Note the fire damaged to the bottom.

Julia,

I am not sure about top left steam one but the below left looks like Russian locomotive class FD 21-3125 to me..and definitely both are not the same..

Thanks Som.

Here's the US' new Grand Central Terminal, New York City, stamp. It's Express Mail, before your eyebrows raise from the price.

One of the great train terminals, for sure. The ceiling is stunning with the constellations depicted upon it. There is a little museum tucked into a far corner, had some nice philatelic material on display last time I was there. A little hint, if you ever visit this place, go down the stairs to the restaurant section; you'll get some of the best New York sauerkraut in the whole city.

The cost is because its for Express Mail.
