Great Continental Railway Journeys

Sit back with a cup of tea/coffee & maybe a biscuit! To enjoy this lovely collection of Mr Portillo’s Great Continental Railway Journeys. You feel good to be transported to far away places with some history humour & very colourful clothing! Enjoy

Great Continental Railway Journeys Series 1-5

Very good packaging. Arrived several days after the last estimated date which was a bit disappointing as it was a present.
