Tuesday Train #92

IMGP5371RawConvMail Rail! A narrow gauge system extending 6.5 miles beneath the City of London which operated from 1927 to 2003 moving parcels and mail on automated trains between different postal sorting centres.  A portion of the system beneath the Mount Pleasant depot has been opened with new trains offering a ride and multimedia experience explaining the history of the system as part of the redeveloped Postal Museum.

    • It was a lot of fun. Its almost a shame that its a ticketed timed ride because of demand, because it meant I couldn’t go do the ride under the postal centre again!! There is also a display of original equipment from Mail Rail beside the station that I didn’t include any pictures of.

      I definitely recommend it to any railfan visiting London.
