Each car has 2 sets of roller shutter blinds and can carry up to 12 tons of mail. The cars have no gangway access and indeed no access from the cabs to the rest of the driving trailers for security reasons.
Technically the 325 have been fine no doubt due to the off the shelf nature of much of the equipment used, its only problem being available work. Royal Mail moved away from using the railway in the early 2000s and the fleet spent some time in store largely unemployed but following new contracts they have found a use again. All but one set remains in service, the other was scrapped following damage and cannibalisation for spares.
