|BAGGAGE, MAIL, EXPRESS & AUTO CARRIERS|
|On August 27, 2004, Amtrak, in a special advisory, announced that all mail and express service would be eliminated by early October. As of early October, many boxcars were been stored. RoadRailer service at Philadelphia had been terminated. There were still reports of sporadic equipment moves, though except for refrigerated ExpressTrak moves, these were generally empty equipment moves.
Package Express and Checked Baggage services continue to be offered.
|This page lists all mail and express equipment at the time of the above announcement. Equipment that continues in service is now listed on the Rolling Stock Page.|
