PostmasterGS enlightened me regarding some German postmarks in an earlier thread and now I have become interested in German Railway postmarks. First, if you are interested in looking for them in your collection, go to this website to find a long list of "bahnpost" postmarks that I found using the search feature on the Stampsx.com website.
If not already filled in, you will need to type the word "bahnpost" in the field that says, "Text im Stempelgerät oder Teile davon" and then click on the search button at the bottom. You will see a list of bahnpost postmarks that you can click on for more information. I am sure many or most of us will need to use Google translate feature or the translator for you particular web browser to understand what you see in front of you as the website is in German.
What to look for? Oval postmark, the word "bahnpost" somewhere on the inside of the oval, the word "zug" or letter z and a large numeral afterward denoting the train number.
Post 'em if you got 'em.
What follows are some of the "bahnpost" or railway postmarks I found on my stockpages and in my album.
