Stamps used for railroad shipment of letters and parcels were issued early on, representing both state-owned and private railways. In Sweden SJ (Swedish Railroads) issued its first stamp in 1856. Around the turn of the century there were many private railroad companies in Sweden. Many stamps were also issued by Great Britain and some of her colonies, for example by the Australian states.
