Russian Post logo on the Rossiya's mail car

The first chance I get to see the train in daylight is at Kirov. Most of the passengers get out to do some trackside shopping. Meanwhile, the mail car sandwiched between the locomotive and the passenger wagons gets loaded up with sacks of mail destined for points east.

This guy, despite not speaking English, stopped me and indicated he wanted his picture taken. I tried to ask him for an email address, but he didn't understand.
