Mail train, mail train, going so fast



Well, not so fast, as we are still in the National Railway Museum. Yes, I know, the original song is Freight Train; I have an Elisabeth Cotton recording.

Years ago, many students worked for the Post Office over Christmas, and one winter I was assigned to the late shift at Durham Railway Station to load and unload mail from one of these trains. I remember it being a cold, windy location. This is only one of the many wonderful exhibits at the world's biggest railway museum.
