DOWN TRAIN 1: Type 3 (Small Octagon) largely superb b/s of NO11/78 on cover with Laureates 6d tied by very fine strike of the 'TPO/ 1 ' obliterator (rated RRRRR on Down covers), oval 'LITTLE RIVER' superb strike on the face & superb strikes on face & reverse of the rare 'POSTED OUT/OF COURSE' handstamp, light 'EDGECOMBE' arrival cds (ERD by 28 years!) on the face, professionally repaired upper-left corner (clear of the h/s). Only four TPO covers have been recorded with an Out of Course handstamp.

The unknown point of origin, makes this a curious cover. If posted at Little River (between Melbourne & Geelong), the stamp would have been cancelled there. Down trains radiated from Melbourne & Edgecombe is north of the city, NNE of Kyneton which is on the Bendigo Line. It seems, therefore, that the letter was probably collected from a station between Melbourne & Little River & processed as a 'Down' article, off-loaded at Little River & returned to Melbourne on the 'Up' service the same day, then re-sorted onto the Bendigo train but, surprisingly, not backstamped in transit. Isn't postal history fun!?

DOWN TRAIN 1: Type 3 (Small Octagon) very fine strike of 'OC8/08' (the year slug '80' inverted) unusually on the face of 1d Postal Card Melbourne-Geelong but with superb 'MISSENT TO/WILLIAMSTOWN' h/s, Geelong arrival b/s of the same date, closed pinholes at U/R otherwise superb. Williamstown is on the branch line running south from the railway junction at Footscray. Absence of a second Melbourne marking indicates after processing at the Williamstown PO the card was returned only as far as Footscray RS to be put on the next Down train to Geelong, where the TPO marking was applied. A terrific item for the collector of missent or redirected mail.
