Mail Railcar

We conducted a very intense work on a postal car from the Mitre line. By retrieving it from junk, and completely overhauled with high quality materials, trying to keep the outside walls the closest to it's original design , while the interior was rebuilt to accommodate guests.



This postal wagon, also called truck or van postal parcels, and the environment railway affectionately known as "Carlitos", circulated by our country serving in the parcel to the railroad postal Mitre.No all wagons were called Carlitos, only this model, due to its close wheelbase, was uniquely designed with two simple lines.
