Thanks for post. Your post have detail of definition of Mail trains . My query is what is difference between Mail and express trains . As you told RMS . Is all Mail trains have RMS wagon still in IR Mail trains.
Expresses which carried mails were mails-now many trains dont have the RMS wagon seperate-sometimes luggage wagon itself is used-and there is no particular train for carrying postal services at present. RMS wagon can be found in the 1041/42 CSTM-Chennai Express and its RSA CSTM-Chennai Mail
