Travelling Post Office, Rail Express Systems Class 47, The Great West TPO UP,Penzance May 1992

A lovely May evening. I was cycling towards the Youth Hostel at Lands End.,but stopped off to post a card home in the train. (First class stamps only,please). The Travelling Post Office network was destroyed a few years ago by Post Office senior managers who had decided that there was not enough traffic on the roads.

Class 47 locomotive owned by Rail Express systems which was launched only in October 1991, but bought by EWS in 1996.

IS THIS 47 588 RESURGENT??
