Marc Weller, Berne

Setting off for the regions

After beginning its third journey in the Bernese Oberland, the “Swiss railway stations” definitive set crosses the Emmental valley and stops in Engadin on its way to the Val de Travers. Additional regional railway stations are illustrated on the four supplementary stamps.

Graphic designer Marc Weller is the owner of the Silversign agency. Having already designed around 20 stamp motifs, he is something of a regular. His work is characterized by close attention to detail. Marc Weller’s abilities are showcased in technical and architectural designs, although dramatic stamp backgrounds are also among his strengths.

Zweisimmen


The traditional Montreux – Bernese Oberland railway has a sleek new look on the stamps with the lowest value in the set.

Huttwil

In contrast, the Bern-Lötschberg-Simplon railway station is an example of state-of-the-art architecture.


Alp Grüm


The Rhaetian Railway makes a stop at this historical, weatherproof building situated almost 2,100 metres above sea level. 


Fleurier

This railway station in the Val de Travers also has a long history. Transports Publics Neuchâtelois / transN trains call in here.

In the 4/18 issue these four motifs will be completed with an additional stamp. The last collectors’ folder with cancelled stamps and additional detailed architectural information will appear at the same time.
