Cor! Well spotted, Mr James! :thumbl: :thumbl: :thumbl: When they said no sport on the stamps, I was lulled into a false sense of security and didn't think to check the selvage for sports! I should know better than to trust those sneaky buggers at the Emporium! :wink:

Wasn't me an imp* whispered in my ear.

Have you noticed that Iron Girder has no tender for the coal and water required for the journey?

There is also what looks like a close freight carragige there and and at other points round the edge.

Sorry gang... been up to my eyeballs for a bit.

To answer some questions... the stamps are only available singly in one LBE because if in a years time a new collector gets a 'second class carriage' stamp, it would be a bit weird out of context. So we will make them available to trade on GCTS but with fewer singles out there I'm not sure they'll be hugely useful. I'll put it in my notes.

The additional carriage in the selvedge was indeed intended to be a 'closed-freight carriage'. It was omitted from the sheet because the bugger wouldn't fit on the cover! I thought I'd use it as decoration instead.

There's a very good reason for the difference in the selvedge, on the Black-Ribboners carriage... I'm mean.

Oh, I wouldn't go that far . . . sneaky bugger, perhaps . . . :wink:

Besides, I like a few surprises and additions in the selvedge. There's plenty of Flatalists who love a good bit of selvedge . . . you know who you are . . .

Don't worry. The Emporium records are excellent.
I am still waiting for my Steam subscription LBEs.
They have been under extreme pressure with a new release and getting ready for the Convention.
Just remember to indicate you want the subscription LBEs with your next order.
