Travelling Post Office W80394

TPO No. 80394

This finally arrived in February, having been stuck in a carriage shed at Euston for over a year since we bought it. Thankfully the graffiti artists have not got to it and it is in good order, probably in better condition than any other item we have ever purchased. It will be housed in the Visitor Centre while the Churchill coach is away for restoration. The labels on the sorting racks indicate that it worked the Penzance postal and a Lincolnshire route.

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 2007 and so does not reflect events in the 7+ years since publication. The text and photographs are repeated verbatim from the original publication, with only a few minor grammar changes but some clarifying notes are added if deemed necessary. The photos from the original publication are provided as scans in this internet version of this long out of print publication.
