Hi all,

Because I have kind of fallen in love with FDCs and covers, I thought I'd share this one for no other reason than that trains are cool, the 1920's are cool and THAT stamp is cool!

P.S. Does anyone know the artist of this? It looks like Paul Calle and Chris Calle (lower right), but it is hard to tell.



Thanks! Happy


Johnny

Found a few covers that were train related, though not sure what James Clark Ross had to do with the railway.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for sharing!

I really like that first cover on your last post.

Really cool!

Not sure what that locomotive is called, but all the cables kind of make it interesting!
