Railroads on Stamps & Covers of Austria
by Dexter C. Wright

Overview (index) Page

The display of rail-related stamps and covers below was collected and lovingly mounted and annotated by former CJRRU member #107 Dexter C. Wright, who died in 2001. I acquired the collection from Al Peterson, aka The Rail Philatelist, who had the good sense and courtesy to keep it intact.

As I told Dexter's son Burt when I asked him for more information about the man who created this amazing artifact, "I feel privileged to own what your dad created - it is just the sort of thing I have always wanted to do with my own collection, but never find time to do, so I am really pleased to own part of his, and now feel inspired to continue and expand it, as well as use it as a model for other parts of my own."

In hopes that it will inspire other CJRRU members as it has me, I am providing images of all the pages of Dexter's Austria collection here, on our CJRRU web site. I have included a few items from my own collection, where I thought they added something worthwhile. (Click here to see a biography of Dexter C. Wright.)
