TPOs on The Nene Valley Railway

In preservation, the Travelling Post Offices on The Nene Valley Railway turn back postal history with an operational pick-up and set-down of mail bags.

These types of TPO were not Post Offices where stamps could be bought, but were specialised coaches for the sorting and stowage of Royal Mail letters and small packets. Exceptionally, there was a posting box on the TPO where first class letters could be posted, when the train was in a station.
