Cover story

Ffestiniog Railway first day cover

A month or so ago, I had an email from the Ffestiniog Railway letter service asking about using a photo I’d taken on one of set of covers marking the issue of stamps featuring Welsh castles. The image in question was this one of the Baguley-Drewry diesel Criccieth Castle arriving at Porthmadog. All the photos I upload to Flickr are posted under the Creative Commons attribution licence, so I was happy for it to be re-used, but it’s always nice to be asked.

Anyway, waiting for me when I got home from the excellent Narrow Gauge South exhibition yesterday (photos soon!) was a package from the FR with a sample of the cover.

Now what’s the old pun about philately getting you nowhere?
