Mainline history: Because the transport of mail in passenger trains regularly caused a delay due to the need to load and unload, it was decided during the 1950s to keep mail traffic separated from passenger traffic as much as was possible. At first, a number of electric railcars of type Mat '24 (Blokkendoos) were converted into mail railcars as the series mP 9200. From then on, the mail could be transported separately from passenger trains. Between 1956 and 1960, a total of 25 Blokkendoos-railcars were converted into motorised postal carriages.
In the sixties, the PTT bought 35 travelling post offices of the series mP 3000, which were specifically designed for mail transport, to replace the old Blokkendoos carriages. The new motorised postal train units were derived from the Mat’64 train unit and were built by the company “Werkspoor”.
