Thank You. From :-Terry Pattu
Thanks for reading myfdc Terry!
Another train-themed stamp release. This one I really like it especially when KTMB Class 93 is in it. Thanks for the pricing information – the Pos Malaysia FB page pictures too blurred for me to see the denomination and it’s very hard to do some budget planning.
Somehow I confused – Class 92 as ETS? If they are, very rare. Only if there is a shortage of proper ETS trains of Class 91 and 93, especially during festive season where the excess demand came from.
Or ETS referred in general as any train service utilizing electrical propulsion in Malaysia? If so, the older Class 83 should be included too, hehehe. And I guess this is second time I’ll see Class 91 featured in stamps since the last in 2010.
Thanks for the insights! The information is really useful. In the brochure, Class 92 is stated as being reserves for festive season. There are 25 of them being used for KL Sentral – Ipoh and Ipoh – Batu Caves.
