Train Mail Bag Rack

Jack captured the train moving past the rack that holds canvas mail bags which serves as a transferring device. This was how and where Granada and Amache post offices received and delivered their mail. Outgoing mail sacks hung on the same rack are grabbed by the train crew. Incoming bags were hooked on the rack to be picked-up by the post office employees.
