London Under the Path: Riding the Underground Mail Rail Line

Jump to last reply

Folks looking for something different in London, check this out (from Thomas Cook e-mail):

ERT RIDES MAIL RAIL
On Tuesday some members of the ERT team made an enjoyable visit to Mount Pleasant, London to explore the underground Mail Rail service and postal museum. The Post Office underground railway was designed solely for the movement of letters and parcels, with its automatically controlled trains operating on a 6.5 mile (10.5km) route between Paddington and Whitechapel. When operations ceased on May 31st 2003 the rail system was essentially left as it stood, but some of the tunnels have now been opened to the public who can take a 20 minute ride on the miniature trains complete with a theatrical audio-visual show and explore the interesting exhibition based in the abandoned engineering depot. A recommended day out for enthusiasts like us!
