Commemoration Tickets and Platform Tickets

Many of the commemoration tickets are of the "Good-bye Steam Locomotive" type, and they make me lonely.
Here I have arranged my collection of platform tickets and commemoration tickets in order by the date of issue, from 1965 to 1996.
I find it " interesting" to compare the prices which are printed on these tickets.
