This is perhaps our most popular rail cover ever. Not surprising really - it's a winner all round. An official Hornby cover Features 1985 Terence Cuneo rail stamp AND has 2003 Hornby stamp. Bears our exclusive Hornby Cinderella sheet of 4 x £1 carriage labels. But it is the postmarks that make it so special: Postmarked at Margate (home of Hornby) on the first day of the 2003 stamp AND postmarked on the last day of 3 Travelling Post Offices: South Wales, South East and East Anglian.

What is a "Cinderella Stamp"??

Remember Cinderella? She was the fairy-tale character who looked like a princess but was really a commoner in disguise. Cinderella stamps follow the same idea. They look like genuine postage stamps, but are really just decorative labels. A real postage stamp can only be issued by a genuine Post Office. However, anyone is welcome to design and print Cinderella stamps. They can’t be used for postage. They are very collectable and some people specialise just in Cinderella stamps. A Cinderella can bring a striking touch to a first day or commemorative cover.
