The Midland Railway (MR) was a railway company that operated in the United Kingdom from 1844 to 1922, when it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway. In 2019 we mark 175 years since the formation of The Midland Railway. Our lovely cover features a painting by John Wigston along with a 1st class definitive stamp and a 31 pence Royal Scot stamp from the 1985 Famous Trains issue, along with a Derby postmark (this is where the Midland Railway head office was based).

Did you know we run a club just for railway covers? It is a great way to get every cover in the Buckingham Railway series. We launched Series 3 of our Railway Collection in 2016. Members of the Railway Cover Club get each new cover reserved for them at the lowest possible price with no commitment. We tell you what is reserved in advance by email. Don't want it? Just email back and say "no thanks!". But as our railway covers often sell out, this way, you don't risk missing out! And we have a great loyalty scheme for club members too.

175th Anniversary of The Formation of Midland Railway

The Midland Railway had a large network of lines centred on the East Midlands, managed from its headquarters in Derby. Initially connecting Leeds with London (St Pancras) via the East Midlands by what is now the Midland Main Line, it went on to connect the East Midlands with Birmingham and Bristol, and with York and Manchester. It was the only pre-grouping railway to own or share lines in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, and it became the third-largest railway in the British Isles (after the Great Western Railway and the London and North Western Railway).
