Issue Name: The Alstom Pendolino
Producer: Buckingham Covers
We are very honoured to be working with Alstom (a world leader in transport and energy infrastructure) to commemorate their branding being put onto one of the Virgin Pendolino trains that they produce and maintain. This cover features a 1st class Union Jack flag stamp and also a 12 pence 1985 trains stamp, and has a Euston Station NW1 postmark (16th September, 2010).
The Alstom Pendolino
Alstom built and now 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 partnersip with round the clock teamwork by Alstom and Virgin Trains.
On the 16th September at Euston station, London, they unveilled the jointly branded Pendolino in celebration of the partnership that delivers a world class intercity service.
