New Stamp Issue, 13 March
Baden Train Station at the Time of the Biedermeier Period
This new stamp, inspired by a gouache created by Erich Pucher, a zoologist and train enthusiast, features the "Südbahn" railway in its early days against the background of the city of Baden. "Bruck", the shiny new locomotive built in 1846, takes centre stage. It operated on the Vienna-Gloggnitz line.
The matching first-day special postmark will be available at the special post office.
When? 13 March 2013 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Where? Rollet Museum Baden, Weikersdorfer Platz 1, 2500 Baden
