Revealing also that the main concern expressed in Claytor's memo is regarding the movement of mail, not passengers, which along with REA were the only viable revenue streams. 

Ironically, with fewer remaining trains to carry the mail, the following year USPS switched from rail to trucks, which finished off what little service still remained.
