The second C2 stamp from Guiné-Bissau features an elaborately decorated loco hauling a train of logs, but the location is harder to identify: possibly Zhanhe or Tieli?

There’s nothing linking C2’s with the small West African country of Guiné-Bissau, except that they issued a set of stamps in 2001 featuring Chinese locomotives. Two were Forestry Railway C2s: 115 with the passenger coach is at Chaihe.

From the 1930s to the 1950s, a 750mm gauge railway connected the Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar to a coal mining region at Nalaikh. Locos and rolling stock were provided by the USSR, and included several 28-tonne locos similar to those supplied to China. This stamp issued in 1979 is part of a set featuring Mongolian locomotives, and illustrates a Hungarian-built КВ-4.

Soviet 28-tonne locos worked in many of the Eastern Bloc countries, and some can still be seen working today. This Lithuanian stamp features a Finnish-built PT-4 loco. This was one of a set of two stamps featuring narrow gauge locos issued in in 2002.
Finally, this stamp from the African republic of Togo includes one of the 28-tonne locos still at work at the Jiaying coal company’s tourist line in China (often known as Shibanxi).

This stamp is part of a sheet of four issued in 2014 and featuring preserved steam locomotives. Two Ff&WHR locos also feature: seeing these together is a foretaste of things to come with our C2. All we need now is Tornado to visit Blaenau Ffestiniog on a railtour…
