Description

Handling and processing millions of items each day required extensive facilities. To speed priority shipments, REA built its own transfer buildings alongside the coach yards of most major terminals to permit faster movement of packages between road and rail. Baggage/Express cars from the railroads and REA's own cars were spotted here for loading and unloading. The other side of the building provided loading/unloading docks for the REA fleet of green delivery trucks, as well as those from larger customers without direct rail service and private trucking companies. 
 
Adding the excitement of these important facilities to your railroad is easy with this new kit. Designed as a modular building, additional kits (each sold separately) can be combined to build a larger or customized building for your layout. Its brick construction and large windows fit any era from the 1900s to the present, and decals for various eras are included for the finishing touch.
