125 Years of the Frontier Railway Spielfeld-Strass – Bad Radkersburg

The Spielfeld Strass – Bad Radkersburg frontier railway is this year celebrating a round anniversary: it was precisely 125 years ago, in 1885, that this railway commenced operations. The commemorative is an impressive reminder of this proud birthday.

The stamp motif, designed by Ernst Sladek, shows both a historic steam locomotive of the time and a modern train of today, thus reflecting the history and development of this southern Styrian frontier railway in an original pictorial language.
