MerchandiseIn the 1950s, Missouiri Pacific offered a "less than carload" freight service in special freight cars carried on their Eagle passenger trains. Today Amtrak is doing the same. Running freight type cars on their trains. Mail and express was always a major factor in producing revenue for passenger trains.

Even in the airline industry, the mail and freight in the bottom of the plane keeps the fare low enough to attract passengers.
