|Great Britain - 150th Anniversary of Public Railways 1975|
This issue came about partly as a result of interest amongst philatelists and railway enthusiasts for a set of stamps featuring trains.
The village where I live is c5 miles from Stockton and 13 from Darlington. Yarm is the town three miles away which has this plaque on the Town Hall.
|Pioneers of the first public railway|
The meeting to establish the first railway, the Stockton & Darlington Railway, was held at the Union Arms in Yarm.
