Oh yeah, COOL railcar! I think that car, or one like it, was recently restored. I read it in TRAINS magazine. Research required...

Fantastic thread. THANK YOU to everyone who posted. Brought back fond memories of my father who started me on stamps, built model HO trains from scratch, and collected old trains on post cards like this. Again, Thank You to every one!

Thanks Nells, not sure if the mail car is a McKeen built rail car, but I sent the site admistrator an email with the postcard attached. We'll see what he has to say, as the site shows several combitnation cars( Mail/Baggage/Smoker/Passenger) but none of a simalar design as my card.

Most of my cards of Paris stations are unused, but I managed to unearth these. St Lazare is particulalrly photogenic. Unlike London stations, most if these are still relatively unspoilt, and Gare d'Orsay is now the Musee d'Orsay, so has been preserved.

Here is a post card I picked up at a show a few weeks ago. It is of the Northern Electric RR's pair of electric interurbans. It operated between Chico, California and Sacramento, CAlifornia at the beginning of the 1900's. The line ran about 90 miles plus or minus.
This interurban was purchased by the Sacramento Northern RR, which later became part of the Western Pacific RR. The card was cancelled in 1910 in Sacramento. Enjoy.

Speaking of the B & O RR, I thought this was neat.
A bill of lading document dated Sept. 5, 1916, with
a hand cancelled documentary stamp from The Dobson Evans Co.
Some interesting items being shipped.
