The MTA Long Island Rail Road 175th Anniversary celebration I mentioned earlier this week is in full swing now at Penn Station! The commemorative U.S. Postal Stamp Cancel is taking place in the 34th Street Entrance Corridor. The LIRR is giving out vintage envelopes with their old logos for you to add your own stamps to (or buy them there) and then have them hand canceled by the USPS. You can also purchase a special pre-stamped, pictorial envelope for hand cancel. They are a limited edition of 500, and they’re going fast!
Correction: I believe the vintage envelopes that were handed out free were actually donated by the President of the Long Island Sunrise Trail Chapter of the NRHS. LIST also produced the limited edition pictorial envelopes that are for sale for $2.00 until 1:00 PM.
Here are some photos of the event. You can also click the photo above to see all the photos I took.
