The ISLAND PACIFIC RAILROAD has been honored by Canada Post with the issuance of a commemorative postage stamp!
Featuring one of the Island Pacific's steam locomotives negotiating a stretch of rail in its garden division, the 48 cent postage stamp will allow the mailing of a First Class letter within Canada. To the best of our knowledge this is the first time a model railroad has been depicted on a Canadian Stamp.

Yes, its true. This is a legal stamp issued through Canada Post. How is it that such an honor has been bestowed on the ISLAND PACIFIC RAILROAD ? Well we like to think our modeling efforts justify this honor but we did give the matter some help. For the low price of $24.95 plus GST and PST (total $28.57) Canada Post will print up a sheet of 25 stamps featuring the picture of your choice ( grandchildren, pets, whatever, as long as you own the copy right, that is your own photo).

To obtain your own special postage stamps all you have to do is call in at your local post office if you live in Canada. If you live outside of Canada and are interested in obtaining Canadian postage stamps featuring your layout, e-mail me and we can discuss how I can help you.
