From letters to containers, it's all on track!

Just about anything could be sent door to door using the railway's parcel service. Even a container could be delivered to the door.
Everyone knows of course that goods are transported by rail. To and from the docks, for example. But did you also know that letters were picked up by train? More than that in fact! From 1840 until 1984 post was even sorted in the train. In the post carriage you can see how this was done.

Today we're open from 10:00 until 17:00 (last admission at 15:30).
