Postage stamps

The 7200 class is famous in a totally unexpected corner of the world - the West Indies.

On the 1st December 1986, Union Island issued a pair of postage stamps featuring sketches of a 7200 class locomotive. The first stamp illustrates the technical / plan drawings; the second stamp depicts the locomotive at work.
