Trains – one of the most loved and successful of all traditional toys is glad to inform that Jersey Post is ready to release a special series of stamps for Europa stamp competition. The series consists of six stamps that depict toy trains. The issue has been already designed and is to be put into circulation on the 24th of March.

The train set continues to be one of the most loved and successful of all traditional toys and the most widely recognised brand of model railway is that produced by Hornby, a British company founded by Frank Hornby.

The trade association known as 'PostEurop' was formed in 1993 to represent the interests of national postal operators. It has 52 members in 49 countries, uniting them and promoting greater cooperation, sustainable growth and continuous innovation.

Stamps bearing the EUROPA logo have been issued since 1956; a theme is set each year for members to interpret and illustrate on a set of stamps, the purpose being to build awareness of each other's culture, history and roots. PostEurop is now responsible for the management and tradition of EUROPA stamps and for ensuring the development of the EUROPA tradition.
