From an early stage in the history of the railway, postal administrations used the railway lines to transport postal items. The railway postal wagons were either placed individually in passenger trains or incorporated in larger numbers into mail-carrying express freight and goods trains. In the post-war period, the postal trains were dominated by the rolling stock of the former Deutsche Reichpost and were formed between large junction stations. These postal trains consisted of wagons which, depending on their design, served to transport letters or parcels. The conventional post was not just transported in the railway postal wagons – it was also actually sorted during the journey. Postal items that had already been pre-sorted and were simply being forwarded to the destination station were transported in covered freight wagons. These were usually rented from DB, however sometimes wagons owned by the Deutsche Bundespost were used.
