Rare Antique Postal Car Joins BG L&N Display

By  | 

Back in June, car number 1107 rolled through Bowling Green. And this morning, it was brought to the depot to be restored.

Crews worked on the track to accept the 1921 L&N railway postal car, one of only two in existence.

Dick Webber, the railroad car restoration chairman says, "The postal mail service was a vital part of keeping passenger rail service in operation, because it provided so much revenue to the railroads."

Webber says the other L&N postal car is in a museum back east.
