Description : Central to the prompt delivery of the nation's mail is its efficient transit throughout the country. From 1830, the Post Office relied increasingly on the overland rail network to achieve this, with Railway Post Offices, Sunday Sorting Tenders and District Sorting Carriages among the services introduced. More important lines carried the famous 'Night Mail' carriages, rarely seen by the public, other than those seeking out the late-night facility of posting directly into the side of a mail train. All these were supplemented by additional services enabling even rural locations to enjoy a 'next day' service only dreamed of in the age of the mail coach. This book provides a history of the overland carriage of mail by rail, from draughty and poorly lit sorting carriages in 1838 through to the purposeful late-twentieth-century 'Ladies in Red'.

Description : Excerpt from Mail by Rail: The Story of the Postal Transportation Service The purpose of this book is to tell the story of the Postal Transportation (railway Mail) Service, past and present. In particular, it is the story of the unsung and highly trained men who expertly sort your mail and mine on speeding trains, day and night. The author and his collaborator, both of whom have worked in this Service, are eager to portray it so that it will interest everyone who mails a letter - as well as the railfan, the r.p.o. Enthusiast or philatelic collector, and the postal transportation clerk himself. Above all, we hope thereby to improve working conditions within the Service and contribute to its personnel's welfare, as well as to more efficient postal services in the public interest.

Description : Shout and we'll kill you! Threats and violence were part of the Great Train Robbery of 1963. Its loot was, at that time, the largest amount of cash ever stolen in Britain. The Crime of the Century seemed to be perfectly planned and executed, but police aimed to show that they'd find those involved and bring them to justice. Would they succeed or would the daring criminals involved in the crime escape with the cash?
