Re: Railway express agency (was LCL)

There is a Kalmbach book “Railway Express – An Overview” by V.S. Roseman that has a lot of info on REA.  Available at Amazon and possibly eBay.  A good book.  Here’s a link:


And another Kalmbach book “Express, Mail & Merchandise Service” by Jeff Wilson.  Here’s a link:


Both are very good sources about REA, and the latter about regular LCL and mail service on railroads as well.  I highly recommend both books.

Do you know the names of those 7 major express companies (+ the little ones as well) that existed pre-WW1?
Any idea what territories each served?
