Philatelic Foreword by Jay Bigalke

A new stamp album from Amos Media Co. will debut Aug. 9 at the American Philatelic Society Stampshow 2018, held jointly with the American Topical Association.

A launch of the album will take place Thursday, Aug. 9, at 1 p.m. in room B141 of the Greater Columbus Convention Center, 400 N. High St., Columbus, Ohio.

The album is part of the Scott National Album topical series and highlights rail transportation stamp issues from North, Central and South America.

The album has spaces for 349 stamps that show locomotives, early steam engines, diesel trains, electric trains and more. Three blank pages are included for extra items not shown in the album. Additional blank pages will also be offered in packs of 20.

This album is printed in color on white pages, a first for the Scott album line.

We would like to thank the ATA for its help with related checklists for use in creating the album.

Additionally, I would like to thank the Amos team for their help in making this project come to fruition.
