Mail Rail

Islington Council has approved The London Post Office Railway - known as "Mail Rail" - as a tourist attraction. The British Postal Museum & Archive (BPMA) plans to open a new postal museum at Mount Pleasant in 2016, but still needs to raise funds. Shown is an artist's impression of Mount Pleasant as it will look with a tourist train. Originally driverless trains carried post underground from Whitechapel to Paddington. Royal Mail mothballed this "secret railway" in 2003. CLICK for more information and photos.
