Travelling Post Office

Every evening, post offices situated in rail carriages travelled between major stations on London to Scotland rail routes from the 1880’s through to the 1930’s.

Thousands of bags, letters, and parcels were loaded on to the train, with police officers keeping a watchful eye on the high-value cargo. The mail was sorted on board the train whilst travelling between stations.
