I saw a Railway express caboose on E bay. It brings to mind this question.

Did REA have thier own trians? Was the train made up of REA box cars alone? Did they really have thier own cabeese?

As a kid I don't remember seeing trains with REA rolling stock.

I worked at UPS back in 1968 and REA was still going strong. At that time UPS was still expanding in the U.S. and did not offer service everywhere in the U.S.
Years later I was working elsewhere and a guy working for me mentioned he had worked at REA. I mentioned I had worked at UPS. He said, "You guys put us out of business".
While some of what he said might be true. I think it was more of changing of the times and the way things were done.
