This page contains to links describing the various aspects of writing and sending a letter during colonial times.  Yes, it is a departure from model railroading but this technology continued to exist more or less up to 1945 and world war II.

 

Since the North river does represent from 1900 to 1930, and railroads represented the leading edge of technology of the times I thought it might be nice to include it here.
