Description:
When the author learned that the LIRR was about to terminate its mail by rail service, he spent the last four days taking many photographs in June 1965. Photos show hanging the mail bag, catching the mail bag, and interior and exterior shots of LIRR RPO cars. There is also a track-side view of the LIRR RPO depot in Richmond Hill, N.Y.
