The stamps in this issue celebrate medical triumphs of the last hundred years from the discovery of antibiotics to brain scans. The cover commmorates the unveling of the new Pendolino branding to celebrate the Alstom and Virgin Trains partnership, and features all six Medical Breakthrough stamps in the issue, along with a Euston Station NW1 postmark.
Alstom built and maintains the 52 high speed tilting Class 390 Pendolino trainsets operated by Virgin Trains on the West Coast Main Line.
The fleet is one of the most intensively used in the world, with 47 trains in service every day, covering 16.5 million miles a year. Running a fleet at this intensity relies on a strong partnership with round the clock teamwork by Alstom and Virgin Trains.
On 16th September at Euston Station, London, we unveiled the jointly branded Pendolino in celebration of the partnership that delivers a world class intercity service.
