The Stagecoach was a vehicle powered by horses or mules to run between stage stations.
They carried people, mail, express, packages, gold, and money.
The stagecoach and coaching industry of the frontier days have been replaced by the bussing, mail delivery, parcel shipping, and armored trucking industries of today.
Stagecoach types can be divided by their appearance and utility.
Stagecoaches can be divided into eastern and western designs. The eastern types were used where the terrain was flatter and less rugged. The western types were used in the rugged mountain terrain.
