Mail Rail: From beginning to end

Mail Rail: From beginning to end

  • £999


The Post Office Railway, when it started running in 1927, was the first fully automated driverless railway in the world. The railway below London became the main means of moving mail, with Mount Pleasant being the hub of the distribution system. Linking with London's main line stations most of the countrys long-distance mail travelled via the Post Office Railway.

The fascinating story of how it began, how it was built, and why it closed is told here in an accessible way that tries to cover a highly technical and innovative system in a way that is easy to understand.
