Orient Express T-Shirt - This bold stamp was issued to commemorate the completion of 10000 kilometers of the Manchurian Railways Asia Express. Manchukuo was a puppet state in northeastern China, in an area collectively known as Manchuria. The rail line was built by Imperial Russia, but was operated largely by Imperial Japan. In 1945, the Soviet Union looted Manchukuo, commandeering the rolling stock and movable equipment. The Asia Express was the fastest scheduled train in Asia at the time. The train enthusiast in your life will appreciate this iconic train t-shirt!
