As the Sabah Train comes huffing by....

My generous friend Mr.Joel yet again has sent me a beautiful miniature sheet to enrich my odd shaped stamps collection. The Malaysian MS depicts the "Sabah Train".  The MS was issued on 28th of December 2015 by Malaysia Post. 

Sabah state railway earlier known as North Borneo railway operates in the state of Sabah, one of the two Malaysian states in the island of Borneo.  It connects over 15 stations and is 134 km long line. In the right side of the MS we can see the stations connecting Papar and Tanjung Aru

This was the third time Pos Malaysia issued Trains on stamps. Along with this MS of the Vulcan steam locomotive, under the heading Pengangkutan awam Malaysia or Malaysian Public transport, Pos Malaysia has issued 3 more stamps - Hitachi Diseal Hydraulic Locomotive, Rail Bus and Diesel Multiple Unit. 

This beautiful MS made my day :).  Terima Kasih Joel!!!   Terima Kasih Banyak Banyak :).

Few of the many other gifts Mr.Joel had sent me can be seen in the below links:

Evolution of Flight materials from US

Today I have received some awesome materials from my well wisher Danny Meng of USA, who introduced the Permanent Pictorial cancellation to me and encouraged me a lot.  Thanks a lot Danny.

The Shuttle and the shuttle carrier stamps will make my Special flights section of my theme Evolution of flights very interesting.

and the 787 first flight cover,  I am sure I can use it effectively in my exhibit as the flight has some interesting features like bending tail, fuel efficiency to tell.

I did not have any stamps from Sierra Leone earlier.  New country to my Evolution of Flight collection.

Last but not the least, thanks for the First day card.
Thanks again Danny.
