All this talk about TPOs at York reminds me of my dear old father in law.
We used to live in York in the 60s, and he visited about once/month. It was a long journey for him all the way from Epsom, and excursion trains were always at anti-social hours. When we got back to the station on Sunday night for his return journey there was usually a down TPO in the platform. In those days there was a post box on the train where you could post for an extra 0.5d (old money).
One night he posted a letter addressed to himself and was delighted when his letter arrived at his house in Epsom only a couple of hours later than him.
Times change. I think weekend excursions ceased some time ago, now TPOs
