Thanks for the links,very helpful.
The last scan I posted was of LNER poster stamps,I believe.These appear to be different from the first series,and are not perforated like other examples I have found.

It appears that this was the second issue. The first series was issued the previous year, 1935, and covered The Southern Railway. Each set consisted of 40 stamps issued 4 per week over 10 weeks.

A useful railway book is Railway Posters 1923-1947 by Beverley Cole and Richard Durack and published by The National Railway Museum, York.


I didn't know that!

Wonderful! If you find a good resource for information about them, I would love to know it. I checked the Railway Philatelic Society’s page, but they don’t mention any resources that seem as though they would be of use. And, of course, if you find the time, I’d love to see the new stamps when they arrive. Thanks again for sharing!

These are wonderful! I too would like to know a bit more about them. They seem to have been issued during the “Grouping” era of UK railways and are perhaps miniatures of the full sized versions they hung in stations. Thanks for sharing!
