The London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) at Tring

 In 1923 the railway through Tring (actually in the parish of Aldbury) became part of the new London, Midland and Scottish Railway and in 1948 it became part of the nationalised British Rail. To record that fact I have added this parcel stamp to the Tring Railway Station page, and also added links to the relevant Wikipedia pages for the railway companies that ran the line through Tring.

If your ancestor worked on the railways, and you want to collect small items which remind you of his workplace this is the kind of ephemera (along with railway tickets) which sometimes survive.
