Railway Thematic Stamps
Railway Ferries or Ships of Railway Companies
© Horst Brix (with support of Keith Downing)
Railway Ferries ? These must be ships, which have a relation to
railways. I think it's not as easy. There are a lot of ships which have
a relation to railways.
There have been ships announced as railway ferries in news or
catalogues, which only transport passengers, but are the property of
railway companies. These ships are not railway ferries in the sense of
the above definition (the same definition you find in Hader/Meier
"Eisenbahnfähren der Welt"), because there have been never
railway tracks on the ships. However, as property of railway companies these
ships are part of railway thematic.
I would like to express my thank to Keith Downing, England, Albrecht Peifer, Leipzig and Horst Przywecki, Berlin, who supported me with their expert knowledge, to create this list.
I appreciate comments and critics to this list. Even working very carefully, it is possible to overlook something or make errors. Just send me an e-mail.
