Travelling Post Office

Enjoy a unique experience at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre - visit our Travelling Post Office (TPO) coaches situated alongside Platform 5 adjacent to the Visitor Centre.

  • Learn about 'Mail by Rail' which started in 1838 and finished as recently as 2004
  • Watch 'Night Mail' which shows how Mail reached Scotland overnight
  • Learn about the 1963 Great Train Robbery which took place locally
  • See how mail was sorted - 'Have a Go' yourself - under expert guidance.

The TPO coaches are open for viewing most Sundays and special event days from 1pm - 4pm
