Description

In 1838, a pioneering system of transport millions of letter and parcels from town to town by railway began, with the Grand Junction Railway Company building the first mail sorting carriage on record. Many of these mail trains travelled at night and Post Office staff collected and sorted nag of letters and small parcels on the go, using lineside apparatus to automatically collect and offload mailbags. At its peak, over 25 million mailbags and 140 thousand parcels were carried by rail, by the last of these TPO trains ran on January 9, 2004, as the Royal Mail switched to air and road transport to move.

This set includes an operating TPO coach that automatically collects a mailbag from the included lineside apparatus, before delivering it to a collection point further around the oval track.
