THEMATIC BIBLIOGRAPHY
Introduction The decision as to what to include and what not to include has been even more difficult than for the Travelling Post Office/Railway Station list. An Index for the first 25 volumes (1966-1991) was issued with the December 1991 issue of Railway Philately, the Journal of the Railway Philatelic Group. Therefore, there seemed little point in listing short thematic articles, which are included in that Index. A further Index, covering volumes 26-33 (1991-1999) was published in March, 2000. For a short Introduction to Thematics, click here. I am grateful to Keith Downing for contributing articles, etc published on the web. Comments and additions should be sent to:
