Edinburgh-Yorkshire, 19th century.

I need help for: A short story
Set in: Yorkshire (UK)
In: Between 1870-1890

I would need a carriage getting to Yorkshire as often as possible (preferably daily) from Edinburgh and then going back to Edinburgh. 
- What could that carriage be carrying? (not asking for ideas, just for some transport routes that used to be frequent between those two places back then and whose existence I wish I knew)
- Do you know if newspapers and periodicals were delivered to houses back then? 

I've got in mind a nice bleak idea but hell, I don't want to write nonsensical crap so I thought I'd ask the wise. 

Thanks for the help in advance.
