Sunday Stamps II - 122

2011, France, transportation

In 2006 a tram network was opened in Mulhouse, a city in Alsace. By 2010 it also included this hybrid tram-train, a first in France. This is a light rail public transport system that runs on urban tram lines that connect with a main railway line. This stamp shows the tram-train at station Mairie. Each station has a different coloured archway holding the electrical wires.

for a favourite, (or Easter)


  1. I'm regretting not visiting Mulhouse when I was on holiday in the Voges now. Love the idea of the archways.

  2. I agree, the archways are a very nice idea. Nice to see them on a stamp.

  3. I'm admiring the archways too.
