Traveling Post Office Postal Covers, a complete set in an album together with a hardback book 'The British Traveling Post Office' by Peter Johnson. The set comprises 32 first day covers bearing Cuneos Famous Trains stamps individually cancelled with the date stamp of all 32 TPOs in existence at that time, on 22nd January 1985. These date stamps were unique to each TPO and only used for letters actually posted into the carriage at the station (or at a few 'late posting' boxes on major stations) With the recent demise of the TPO, this is a rare opportunity to own a significant piece of British transport history.
