The Fast Mail was a train operated by Amtrak from Washington, DC to Boston and Springfield, Massachusetts, numbered #12 (northbound) and 13 (southbound). Train 12 carried both passengers and mail while train 13 carried mail and freight only.

At New Haven a separate train ran to and from Springfield (412/413). Train 12 departed Washington daily at 3:00am while 13 departed Springfield/Boston in the early morning. In 2002, train 13 was canceled and 12 became 190, without mail and express service.
