The postal administrations used the railway to transport the postal items early in the history of the railway. The rail mail wagons were either set up individually in passenger trains or added in large numbers as part of express and freight trains with postal transport. In the post-war period, the postal trains were shaped by the carriage material of the former Deutsche Reichspost and were formed between large node stations. Such mail trains consisted of wagons which, depending on the type of construction, were used to transport letters or parcels. The mail was not only transported in the rail mail wagons, but was already sorted during the journey. Mail items that had already been pre-sorted and were only distributed at the destination station were transported in covered freight cars - mostly rented by the DB, some of which were also owned by the Deutsche Bundespost.
