|Dear Collectors and Researchers
In 1973 collectors and researchers joined together in the field of "Railway Post Office" in the Federal Republic of Germany. Thus the foundation of the RPO study group started. In the meantime it has gained about 250 members, some of them from other European countries and some even from overseas. Anyone who is interested in RPOs can apply for membership of the German RPO society
BArGe Bahnpost e.V. roughly 250 members
The research of the history and postal history of "mail by rail" is very interesting. The most interesting part of the hobby for philatelists is, to reconstruct the historical aspects with the help of RPO postmarks on envelopes or postcards. The RPO researcher finds it imperative to analyze timetables, files in archives and literature. Our society can offer help here, especially by:
In order to manage all of these tasks it is necessary that all RPO interested persons work together. The co-operation of all RPO collectors and researchers will make it possible to describe the history of "mail by rail".
Join the RPO study group - it's worthwhile!
Current yearly fee is 50 Euros
