The Oldest Post Office Car Became Available for Visiting
The Russian Railway Museum will tell how the sending and sorting of letters was arranged more than 100 years ago.
After the restoration, a four-axle post office car, built in 1902 by the Russian-Baltic Carriage Works in Riga, is opened for visit. This is the oldest post office car, remained in Russia.
Restoration of the car began several years ago and, as a result of the scrupulous work of specialists, its interior was completely restored.
There are two luggage storage rooms inside the car along with a service room for parsing correspondence, a vestibule and a restroom. The Museum staff has created an exposition on the history of postal transportation by rail and has organized visitors’ access inside the baggage storerooms.
