Special stamp Oevebria

Even in the post-World War II period, the Austrian Post and Telegraph Administration continued to rely on electric mobility.

In the 1950s, the postal service had to acquire new parcel vans and opted for the 2 ENO and 5 ENO models from the Austrian automobile manufacturer ÖAF. ENO stands for Elektro-Niederflur-Omnibus, with the numbers 2 and 5 indicating the respective payload in tonnes. The more powerful 5 ENO could also tow trailers and was used in Vienna until the 1980s for transporting goods from the station to the post office and between post offices. ENO vehicles were also used in Graz, Klagenfurt, Linz, and Salzburg. The depicted stamp, with a nominal value of 10 Schillings, also dates back to the post-war period. It shows Heidenreichstein Castle and was designed by Hans Strohofer, with engraving by Georg Wimmer. It is part of the 34-stamp series "Buildings and Monuments", which was issued from 1957 to 1970.
