Thomas Travelling Post Office Weekend

Thomas is excited that the Wansford Controller is letting him pull the mail train over the Early May Bank Holiday Weekend at the Nene Valley Railway (April 29th, 30th & May 1st). Come along and meet Postie Pete and his Cat, Ginger, who work on the mail train. The trip starts with everyone riding in the mail train through the tunnel before Thomas, Pete and Ginger show you how they exchange heavy bags of mail from a moving train using the big nets on the train and on the ground!
