|The main mail contract for the railroads ended in -I believe- 1967 but even in the 70s Amtrak era some mail was still being sent on its trains. Here, an almost daily occurrence as a truckload of mail is being loaded on the Lone Star at Houston before its daily departure for Chicago. The post office was next door to the station (site of the torn down in the 50s SP Grand Central station). Sometimes I saw two trucks loading mail.
