25-09-1998: Sheet of Dutch locos
(regional mail delivery service).


On the occasion of the realisation of a second track from Grijpskerk to Veenwouden "Regiopost Noord-Oost Friesland", a private mail delivery service, designed a sheet of 10 stamps in co-operation with "NS Railinfrabeheer". This regional mail service is only active in the north-eastern region of The Netherlands. Because of the double track a train trip from Groningen to Leeuwarden (54 kilometres) will only take 35 minutes. When updating the track also two thirds of the level crossings disappeared and a number of tunnels was built. From now on service will be run with "Buffalo" (Buffel) trains.
The stamps show the equipment with which was run in former years. From 1863 till 1953 the steam locomotive was in service. From 1953 till 1982 the "Blue Angel" (Blauwe Engel) was a familiar guest. After that came the "Shallows Runner" (Wadloper), which ran services throughout the north of The Netherlands. From 1960 Plan U trains, also called "Dog's Head" (Hondekop) were in service. And from now on we'll see more of the "Buffalo" (Buffel).
