150 Years of the Feldkirch-Schaan-Buchs Railway Line
Face value CHF 1.80
Motif 150 Years of the Feldkirch-Schaan-Buchs Railway Line

Since 1872, a single, almost nine-kilometre-long railway line has run through the Principality on a single track. It is part of the connection between Feldkirch (Austria) and Buchs (Switzerland) via Schaan (Liechtenstein) and is operated jointly by the three countries. In the small country, the stops Schaan-Vaduz, Forst-Hilti and Nendeln are served by regional trains and are used mostly by commuters on their way to work.

The souvenir sheet with the anniversary stamps "150 Years of the Feldkirch-Schaan-Buchs Railway Line" (face value: CHF 1.80) is a unique joint issue by the postal companies of Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. It shows all three special stamps of the neighbouring countries with photographs of different train compositions; in Liechtenstein it is the 4024 series.

In each country, only that country’s own stamp is perforated on the souvenir sheet and shows the respective face value. However, a cancelled souvenir sheet with all the face values will also be available.

In addition, the postal companies are organising an anniversary event in Feldkirch on 9 and 10 September 2022, where the stamps will also be cancelled on request.
