And my last card for today comes from the Turkish RR, from the jubilee Group 100.
And such a great one...I think that for today i basically covered my top interests...a map, then a lighthouse, and now a railway related card. :)
This one shows the Hong Kong railway museum, located in Tai Po. Here in particular you can see the semaphore used to control the rail traffic.
There are two locomotives on exhibition at the museum, EMD G12 Diesel-electric locomotive #51 and A W.G. Bagnall 0-4-4T narrow gauge steam locomotive.
There are six coaches on the tracks for public viewing and appreciation of the contrast between the old and the new.
A 1911 third-class compartment, #302
A 1921 engineering coach, #002
A 1955 third-class compartment, #223 (an educational video room)
A 1955 luggage compartment, #229
A 1964 first-class compartment, #112
A 1976 ordinary-class compartment, #276
And also, there are a pump trolley and a diesel-engined railcar
A rather well known HK kind of a stamp I think...a definitive issued in 2006 in a set of 16 bird stamps, showing the Red-whiskered Bulbul.
Thats all for today...as always, thanks for reading and thanks for the great cards!
