Express, Mail & Merchandise Service is a prototype guide to modeling package, express, and mail traffic. This book gives a historical perspective from when railroad personnel actually handled packages and merchandise -everything from baby chicks and cornflakes to money and machinery and got them to their final destination. It also includes chapters on freight houses and transfer terminals, baggage cars and other equipment, operations, and express companies like Railway Express Agency. The book provides modelers with ideas for their layouts, whether large or small, from the 1900s through the 1960s.
