Transporting architecture

New stamps feature historic rail stations

Clockwise from upper left, the railroad stations in San Bernardino, CA; Cincinnati; Tamaqua, PA; Richmond, VA; and Point of Rocks, MD, appear on the Postal Service’s latest stamps.

The Postal Service will release its latest stamps, Railroad Stations, on March 9.

The stamps celebrate the romance and glamour of train travel by featuring five railroad stations — architectural gems all — that continue to play an important role in the life of their communities.

They are Tamaqua Station in Pennsylvania; Point of Rocks Station in Maryland; Main Street Station in Richmond, VA; Santa Fe Station in San Bernardino, CA; and Union Terminal in Cincinnati.

All five are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Art direction for the stamps was provided by Derry Noyes, a USPS art director. Down the Street Designs created the stamp images and typography.

The Forever stamps will be available at Post Offices and
