The TPOs of New Zealand

By Anthony Nicholson

The New Zealand Railway Travelling Post Offices cancellation check list is based on the information contained within the publication Mails by rail in New Zealand by Albert B Johnstone and Robin M Startup. Their classification of the marks has been retained.

The purpose of the document is to build the data/knowledge with regards to the periods of use of each of the marks. This information has apparently been twice lost in fires at records offices and so this is another attempt to rebuild. If you have any material which extends the given dates please provide details and scans to the author via the webmaster who will forward as appropriate.
