“When I was a kid, and we would go to visit my grandparents, my granddad would take me down to the basement to see his HO-scale train layout,” says Kevin Blackston, propietor of Philosateleian Post. “It’s a grand hobby and I’m pleased to be able to recognize it with this new stamp.”

In addition to the locomotive’s silhouette, the new 1-stamp stamp bears the legend “Gordon Cooper Special,” a tribute to Blackston’s late grandfather, Gordon Forehand (1936–2016).
