Notes:

Express, Mail & Merchandise Service describes rail express service and merchandise traffic on railroads from the early 1900s through 1960s when railroad personnel handled packages and merchandise, everything from baby chicks and cornflakes to money and machinery, and got them to their final destination. A wonderful historical reference for modelers and railfans alike. This 96-page book has 160 color photos, and covers:
- Depots, freight houses, and terminals.
- Dedicated trains, special cars, and delivery vehicles.
- Train operation and car movement.
- And much more!
