Celebrate the 15th anniversary of the SideTracked Series with our newest Geocoin release!
This geocoin features pivoting upper quadrant semaphore signals, just like the real one seen line side in the UK, although these are now sadly declining in favour of modern colour light signals.
On the front of the geocoin is a full colour countryside scene showing an old fashioned railway crossing gate, a signal box and LNER Class A4 4468 – Mallard, an iconic steam engine built in 1938 which holds the world speed record for the fastest steam train, clocking up 126mph!
On the rear of the coin, which is largely embossed in a antique gold finish, HST unit number 253004 is appearing from a Wiltshire box tunnel, designed by engineering genius Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The tracking number can be found on the rear of the semaphore signal arm.
For each geocoin sold, a donation will be made to the Railway Children Charity who provide protection and opportunity for children with nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to.
